St. Scholastica's Social Work Program is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education, which requires graduates be well prepared for beginning professional social work practice. Our graduates enter most Master of Social Work programs with advanced standing.
The College of St. Scholastica accepts credits in transfer from any post-secondary accredited college or university. To transfer credits an official transcript must be sent directly to St. Scholastica and grades earned in the transferred classes must be a C or better.
Students who are transferring with an A.A.S. in Human Services may transfer 4-6 credits into the BA in Social Work program if they have taken the Intro to Social Work class and a Field I internship. Students will submit information about their field internship hours along with a request to waive the requirement.
The goals of the Social Work program are as follows:
St. Scholastica's Social Work Program prepares students in the generalist social work method, emphasizing beginning practice with individuals, families, groups and communities.
Students graduating from our program are eligible to take state licensing exams at the LSW level.
Students obtaining their Bachelor of Arts degree in Social Work at St. Scholastica are eligible for advanced academic standing in many graduate schools of social work within the U.S. This often reduces graduate school curriculum requirements to one year.
