2022 - 2023 Undergraduate Catalog 
2022 - 2023 Undergraduate Catalog [FINAL EDITION]

Social Work/Sociology, BSW/BA

The BSW program has numerous dual degree options for students. These include psychology; sociology (applied practice track); gender, women, and sexuality studies; criminal justice; fine arts; and K–12 school counselor certification. All students enrolled in these programs must consult with their advisors in social work and the corresponding program for accurate academic advisement in both programs.

Please note that courses in the following dual degrees may be taken out of order so that students can complete all curricular requirements: Psychology; Gender, Women, & Sexuality Studies; Sociology; Fine Arts; and Criminal Justice.

Students may elect to earn a dual degree in social work and sociology. This is accomplished by using free electives to complete requirements for the sociology major, including the general education requirements. Students who follow the curriculum receive both a BSW and a BA in sociology.

Students wishing to earn a dual degree with sociology must choose the Applied Sociology concentration (see the “Requirements —Sociology Major with Applied Sociology Concentration” section of the catalog). Note: SOC 105  should be taken freshman year; SOC 355  should be taken fall of junior year; SOC 382  should be taken spring of junior year; and SOC 405  should be taken spring of junior year. Also note that SOC 355 , SOC 382 , and SOC 405  are only offered one time each year. The social work field placement substitutes for the SOC 423  internship requirement.

The program of study that appears here applies to students who were admitted for the summer session of this catalog year and later.  Students admitted prior to that term should select the appropriate catalog year of their admission.  Choose previous catalogs from the Home, Graduate, or Undergraduate Catalog Page at http://Catalog.widener.edu.
