It is two years of 15 credits per semester without
summer courses – you start your advanced
courses in the spring while you complete
foundation; foundation field is 2 days a week (2
semesters) and advanced field is 3 days a week
(2 semesters); it is a Sept-May schedule for 2
years. You may reduce your semester load by
taking summer courses. You can also extend
adv. field by going 2 days a week Sept. - July

What is a Diversity Requirement?
Content on diversity is woven into the foundation
courses and advanced courses
Faculty wish to insure that students have
additional content and have designated certain
advanced courses as being more focused on
diversity, including populations at risk, as
defined by CSWE; competency is demonstrated
Class schedules list these courses (after Shady
Grove courses appear)
Diversity Requirement
Each student must take one of the
following courses, some of which may
fulfill other requirements you have:
SOWK 713-Soc. Policy and Health Care
SOWK 715-Children and Social Policy
SOWK 720-Comparative Social Policy
SOWK 764-Multicultural Perspectives

Secondary Concentration and
Individual Specialization
While you must choose a primary concentration,
you may take courses in the other (secondary)
one. The field placement will reflect the primary
concentration only; the secondary concentration
is a classroom designation only and does not
include field experience.
You may also create your own specialization as
long as concentration requirements are met.
This is called an individualized specialization.
Other Points
Overviews of Curriculum & Specializations are on the web
You must take a methods (practice) course with each
semester of advanced field (an SWCL course if you are
a Clinical concentration and an SWOA course if you are
a MACO concentration)
Meet with your advisor (assigned every Sept. and listed
in student mailroom); read the Bulletin and your
university email
The tentative class schedule is on the web for spring;
summer of ’11 may resemble summer of ’10 (summer
’11 and next academic year schedules will be available
in mid-March 2011); summer and fall registration in April
Still More Points
Be pro-active in understanding your
requirements and get engaged in learning
Understand that 2 grades of F any time
while enrolled or one F and 3 unbalanced
Cs will result in dismissal
3.0 needed to go into advanced year and
to graduate
Most teachers require class attendance
