Bachelor of Social Work (B.S.W.)

To complete the social work program, you are required to take the following courses or their equivalents in these areas:

General Education Requirements
See GENERAL EDUCATION section of this catalog.

The general education requirements for the B.S.W. degree are more specific in some areas than those for the Bachelor of Arts.

The B.S.W. requires 22 credits in the social sciences, including courses in psychology, sociology, political science and economics. Several of these requirements also meet the College general education requirements in the area of Social Environment.

The B.S.W. degree requires a course on values or ethics, either PHL 126 or PHL 225 OR PHL 276, which also serves as the College general education requirement under Religious and Philosophical Traditions.

To fulfill the College requirement for computer literacy, each social work major must pass a computer skills assessment in the STICC lab. Students take the computer assessment as part of the SW 312 course.

Thus, of the courses designated for College general education credit, these specific courses are required for the Social Work Program

All required Social Work (SW) courses taken at Marygrove, or at another CSWE accredited undergraduate program, have a limit of 6 years. If a course has been taken more than 6 years ago, it must be retaken. SW 350: Social Work Practice I, SW 450: Social Work Practice II, and SW 455: Field Practicum must be taken at Marygrove. Also, SW 455 must be started within six months of completing SW 350. SW 450 must be taken concurrently with SW 455. If a student has not completed the entire field practicum (SW 455) within 12 months of completing SW 450, then SW 450 must be retaken.

A grade of C (2.0) or better must be achieved in all core social work courses, and a minimum grade point average of 2.5 must be maintained in the professional core. Successful completion of all core courses with a grade of “C” or higher, maintenance of the GPA requirements, and attainment of the goals and objectives of the field practicum as measured in the final field evaluation, will demonstrate a student’s readiness for a career as a professional social worker.
