Social Work - Major

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: School of Health and Human Services

The B.S. degree in social work program requires extensive supervised field experience. It makes use of Rochester-area health and human service agencies to acquaint students with the diversity of professional activity and opportunities existing in this field.

Senior Experience for Social Work

The Senior Integrative Seminar, concurrent with the field practicum, strengthens the integration of theory and practice by emphasizing the linkages between the liberal arts and all components of the social work curriculum and social work practice. It further sharpens the student’s ability to question and to think critically; to explore personal, professional, cultural values and ethical issues; to prepare for productive contributions to society; and to engage in lifelong learning.

The senior comprehensive examination assesses the student in the required content areas in social work, allows for further opportunities for linkages with the liberal arts, and provides outcome assessment information for the social work faculty.
