If you are a current social work major, or interested in applying to the BSW program, the resources below can help you navigate through the academic process.
Students interested in the social work major are encouraged to speak with a BSW faculty advisor for more information about the program.
Upon declaring social work interest, students are assigned a faculty advisor who works with them on academic planning for the duration of their studies. The role of the faculty advisor is to help students develop a multi-year academic plan, mentor them in their professional development, and be their liaison during the admissions process. Students will also meet with their advisor prior to class registration each semester. While the faculty advisor is the primary contact person within the program, students are encouraged to meet with other faculty as needed as part of their professional development.
For information on applying to the social work major, view the BSW admission requirements.
