A passing grade is required in supporting courses.
It is recommended that students consult with their advisors and develop a long-range schedule as early as possible in their academic careers. Students interested in graduate education in social work (M.S.W. or Ph.D.), in joint graduate programs with law, public policy, public health, gerontology, or in criminal justice should work with their advisors to prepare for these career trajectories.
To fulfill the College’s Advanced Writing Proficiency requirement, each student is evaluated through materials presented during her senior year.
The Senior Comprehensive in Social Work is fulfilled by the Senior Comprehensive e-Portfolio and the Senior Comprehensive Oral Examination which demonstrates the student’s competency in the required curriculum areas. Because of the professional nature of the Social Work major, a student who plans to complete a dual major in Social Work and another discipline may do so only on the condition that she completes SW 495 Integrative Seminar and the Social Work Senior Comprehensive e-Portfolio and the Senior Comprehensive Oral Examination.
