Plans of Study

The coursework is spread across four semesters. You can start your B.A.S.W. program starting in the fall or spring semester.

The first year consists of four classroom courses and faculty advising, and the second year consists of four classroom courses, the Field Practicum and Integrative Seminar, and faculty and field advising.

SOWK 2600 Introduction to Social Work and Social Welfare must be taken before beginning the remaining courses in the curriculum.

Regardless of when you enter the program, you must complete the first year's four classroom courses before entering the Fieldwork Practicum.
