1 Bonnie Holiday, Chair and Director Emily Dixon, Director of Field Instruction Randy Baxter Nathan Foster Jaclyn Caroffino, Adjunct mission The social work program of Spring Arbor University is dedicated to helping students build upon and integrate their liberal arts foundation with the knowledge and skills of the social work profession, and to apply social work and Christian values to ethical social work practice. We are also dedicated to preparing competent generalist social workers who are sensitive to and appreciative of diversity, committed to social and economic justice, and prepared to empower individuals, families, groups, organizations and communities. The discipline of social work involves using a planned problem-solving process to help individuals improve relationships and resolve problems. A distinction of this profession is a focus on how individuals and their environment interact which gives social workers a wide variety of options for intervention. Social workers are especially interested in helping those people who are most at risk due to social and economic injustices and discrimination. Social workers with a bachelor of social work (BSW) are prepared to work with a wide variety of client populations in a wide variety of settings. A BSW from an accredited program also makes you eligible for admission into advanced standing master of social work (MSW) programs, which prepares you for specialized practice, including individual, family and group psychotherapy. Career opportunities A bachelor of social work will prepare you to work in settings such as the following: developmental disabilities services program strengths and emphases The social work program at Spring Arbor University is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education. A major strength of our program is a faculty dedicated to mentoring, nurturing and supporting students as they develop academically, spiritually and professionally. Students take classes in sequence that allows them to build supporting and caring relationships with each other. The curriculum focuses on a balance between theory and skill development in small classes that provides ample opportunity for active participation. 220

2 Our faculty have extensive practice experience in social work and create learning experiences that reflect actual agency experiences. The curriculum also provides direct experience working in the social work field through a junior level exploratory and senior level internship. Students majoring in social work are encouraged to explore how their Christian beliefs can be integrated with the knowledge, skills and values of the profession as they prepare for their professional career. Application to the major is required before junior level practice courses are taken. Freshmen, sophomores and transfer students can declare their intent to major in social work and will be assigned to a social work advisor who will help them prepare for admission to the major. Application to the major takes place after completion of SWK 281 Introduction to Social Work. Transfer students who have completed the equivalent of SWK 281 at another accredited program may provisionally take one semester of junior-level courses while they apply to and are accepted into the program. 1. Completion of 40 credits of general education and liberal arts requirements. 2. Cumulative grade point average of Successful completion of SWK 281 (C+ or better). 4.

Personal interview with social work faculty. note: The decision as to whether all requirements are adequately met for admission to the social work major will be made by the social work faculty. See the Social Work Handbook for more information. The social work major requires 18 credits of support courses and 43 major credits in a sequence. Because the curriculum has been developed to build on previous learning, deviations from this sequence will be allowed only in extreme circumstances, and require approval from your social work advisor.
