    What will I study?

    At the undergraduate level, the educational program is designed to prepare graduates for entry-level social work practice. The focus is on a problem-solving generalist model which fits the needs of the region. The objectives of the program are to:

    1. Prepare graduates for entry-level professional positions in the field of social welfare.
    2. Provide a foundation for those who wish to pursue graduate education in social work.
    3. Assist students who want to use a social work major as preparation for other professions and services or as preparation for civic leadership and participation in community social services.

    To meet these objectives, the School offers a professional curriculum with courses in human behavior in the social environment, intervention methods, social welfare policy and services, research methods and field practicum. This professional curriculum is supported by a liberal arts foundation, with required courses in the behavioral/biological sciences. The undergraduate program emphasizes a task-centered, problem-solving approach to social work practice.
