A generalist approach to social work intervention emphasizes a problem-solving relationship model and reflects a variable client system focus. The primary objective of the social work program is to prepare students for beginning professional social work practice. Recognizing the diversity of societal and geographical environments present in the region, the program strives to promote the professionalization of social services through quality education and community service. The knowledge base of the program focuses on understanding the transaction between the person and society. Appreciating the values of the profession guides the student in developing appropriate attitudes necessary to the helping relationship. Practice skills result from both classroom and field experience. Development of the student’s self-awareness as an individual and as a social person is a prerequisite to developing skills in the use of the self as an agent of change. A programmed schedule, which outlines the sequence of required courses and elective options, is available and should be reviewed with an advisor from the program.
