To become a Social Work major is actually a two step process.  

  • The first step occurs at the University level where a student may indicate “social work” as a desired major at the time of admission to the University as part of the admissions process, or by completing a “Change of Major” form and filing the form with the Office of the Registrar some time after the initial admission and registration. 
  • The second step occurs at the Department level during the Fall Semester of the Junior year.  All students are required to complete an Application to Major in Social Work which is reviewed by the Social Work Department Admission Committee.
