The 69 unit undergraduate Social Work major is designed to apply to a wide variety of social work practice settings. The preparatory course work for this major includes a basis in the liberal arts requiring classes in human biology, economics, public health, psychology, sociology, statistics and Social Work. The upper division curriculum is intensive and exciting. It encompasses course work in Social Work practice, human behavior, cultural pluralism, social policy, macro level practice, and research. Elective seminars are available in specialized fields such as child welfare, aging, alcohol and other drugs, and family studies. A field work practicum experience is also required. The minor in Social Work consists of 24 units and is strongly recommended to all students with majors in the social and behavioral sciences who wish to broaden their competencies in a related discipline. The Community Corrections Case Management Specialization was developed to give interested undergraduate social work students an opportunity to develop specific knowledge and skills in the area of forensic social work. In this specialty, students take their 3 electives in a choice of Criminal Justice Department courses (in lieu of social work electives) and they are placed in criminal justice settings such as San Diego Probation or SB618 Case Management Program among others, for their field internship (SW489A/SW489B) in their senior year.
