The Social Work Program is a professionally accredited program by the Council on Social Work Education. Thus, the curriculum must demonstrate continuity, integration, and sequencing of knowledge acquisition. This includes the core courses, related courses, and a structured sequence of social work courses.
Transfer students must meet the same, aforementioned admissions criteria. Students can not receive Social Work course credit for life experience or previous work experience.
Students, transferring from other accredited social work programs, will have their coursework reviewed by the department chair so as to prevent duplication of academic content and to ensure equivalent content of WSU social work courses. Students transferring from social work programs that are not accredited will have their transcripts and courses reviewed on a case-by-case basis for equivalent content as well as validation of the credentials of the faculty teaching the courses. Students will be required to provide the following: the institution's course catalog, copy of the syllabus, and credentials of the instructor.
