Social Work

Hope offers a major in social work that is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education. This major introduces students to the theoretical perspectives in psychology, political science, economics, sociology, and social work as well as to the practical application of material from these disciplines.

Graduate schools of social work are interested in students who have a broadly based liberal arts education and a theoretical background in the disciplines of social sciences. The present job market reflects the advisability of Spanish as a second language.

In their senior year, social work students will enroll in one or more internships. Opportunities also exist to volunteer for Higher Horizons' big brother-big sister program or for community-based organizations or through the Community Service Office (Michigan Campus Compact).
