Academic Advising Information for the Social Work Program

Social Work education begins with the completion of a strong liberal arts base in the freshman and sophomore years. This includes fulfillment of SUNY Plattsburgh's general education requirements, as well as specific courses in sociology, psychology, human biology and statistics. Coursework in political science and women's studies are part of the social work major. (See "Programs of Study - Social Work Major" for details.)

The professional program is completed in the junior and seniors years. Required courses are completed in a specific order as follows:

Junior Year - Fall Semester

Junior Year - Spring Semester

Senior Year - Fall Semester

Senior Year - Spring Semester

In preparation for the social work major, students are encouraged to pursue volunteer experience and summer employment in human service agencies.

Applications for admission to the junior-senior professional program are available in February of each year in Ward Hall Main Office (Rm 109) for SUNY Plattsburgh sophomores. Transfer students may apply through the College's Admissions Office.
