Bachelor of Social Work Program

Department of Social Work

Admissions

Admission to the BSW Program

There are two levels of entry to the social work major. The first level is declaring social work as your major. If you are interested in becoming a social work major, you can do so by declaring social work when you enter ETSU. Existing ETSU students may change their major to Social Work by meeting with a social work advisor at the Center for Advisement and Student Excellence (CASE) office to at the Social Work Department.

The second level of entry is formal admission to the major and the upper division Social Work Practice classes. Students typically apply to the major when they have completed most of their general education requirements, all admission criteria, and are enrolled in the HBSE course (SOWK 3000). At the time of application, ALL criteria must be completed. In order to accommodate our community college students with an ETSU articulation agreement and intra-university transfer students, an exception may be granted to allow enrollment in one or two of the introductory social work courses (typically SOWK 1020 or 1030) at the time of application for admission or an extension to complete the human service activity.


 

Application Deadlines

Students must complete applications while the student is enrolled in the Fall course HBSE (SOWK 3000), which will allow enrollment in Practice with Individuals (SOWK 3320) the next semester ONLY if the student is formally accepted into the major. Specific courses in the social work practice sequence (SOWK 3310, 4330, 4340, and Field Experience) cannot be taken prior to formal admission to the major.

Students will complete the attached application packet and turn it in to the Social Work Department, first floor, at Lyle House, by October 1st. The application materials are to be placed in a large envelope clearly labeled with the following information on the outside of the envelope:  BSW Program Application and your name.  The envelope should be large enough for the papers without folding.

Social work is a professional program of education and training and therefore requires comprehensive academic standards throughout the program. The Baccalaureate Social Work (BSW) Program Committee has identified academic performance standards that fall into 7 categories: scholastic, professional values and ethics, self-awareness, interpersonal relationship skills, responsibility and professional readiness, critical thinking and problem-solving abilities, and communication skills, as advanced in the program's Academic Performance Standards for Admission, Retention, and Graduation. These academic performance standards with essential behaviors in each category are primary indicators of professional readiness for practice in the field of social work. Students must demonstrate ability to meet these standards in order to be admitted to the program.

The academic performance standards are applied when the student meets with a faculty advisor to open his/her file in the department and discuss the Academic Performance Standards in Appendix A.

Requirements for submitting an application for admission to the Social Work Program:

  1. Completion of, with a C or better, Introduction to Social Work (SOWK 1010), Professional Values and Ethics (SOWK 1020), and Cultural Diversity (SOWK 1030). A grade of C-minus does not meet this criterion.
  2. A minimum overall grade point average of 2.25 and a 2.5 average in the three required social work courses.
  3. Completion of 60 clock hours of face-to-face human service activity, paid or volunteer, in one or more social service agencies.
  4. Students must complete and submit to the BSW Program Director a complete application packet.

Criteria for acceptance into the Social Work Program:

  1. Submission of a completed application packet by October 1st for entry to the program in the spring semester or the following fall semester. If the application deadline does not fall on a day the institution is in session, the application is due the first school day following the deadline date.
  2. Satisfactory performance during the 60 hours of human service activity, as indicated by the student's supervisor on the reference checklist, located on the back of the Human Service Activity form.
  3. Positive feedback from social work instructors during the admission process on overall academic performance in completed social work courses.
  4. All application materials demonstrate potential and suitability for the social work profession, as defined in the program's Academic Performance Standards.

An Academic Performance Review may be scheduled if the student's application or input from faculty suggests the student's inability to meet any of the program's Academic Performance Standards when his or her application is reviewed by the BSW Program Committee.


 

Human Service and Social Justice Activity Requirement

One of the requirements for admission to the program is completion and documentation of 60 hours of human service activity, paid or volunteer. This requirement provides experience in helping that allows you to determine if you and a career in social work are a good "fit." In addition, it allows you to gain some insight into and experience with working as a helper. To meet this requirement we want you to have some type of post-high school, face-to-face helping experience. Therefore, agency training activities, life guarding, running agency errands, teaching Sunday school, babysitting, or doing secretarial work for an agency are among the kinds of activities that are viewed as inappropriate in fulfilling the human service requirement, although they might be otherwise valuable personal experiences. Instead, we want students to enter the social welfare and social justice arena and to engage in helping activities that are outside of the normal spheres of student experience that are campus related and church related, although occasionally the faculty advisor may grant partial credit in advance for such activities if they are in keeping with the spirit and intent of the human service requirement. More appropriate human service activities would include, for example, working as a camp counselor, being a Big Brother or Big Sister, interacting with nursing home patients or hospital patients, working in a shelter, determining need and distributing food and clothing to needy families, and so on. Appropriate social justice activities (a maximum of 30 out of the 60 hours) would include assisting in efforts to organize events and promote education about social justice movements such as Women’s March on Washington, Black Lives Matter, and NoDAPL. Students may be granted limited credit by the faculty advisor for "shadowing" a social worker as that person carries out his or her duties.

Students may work in more than one setting but will need to have a form to document their volunteer hours filled out for each different setting in which they work.

If you have questions about whether or not a volunteer experience will count toward the 60 hours, see the faculty advisor who will render a decision and record it in your student file. The program now requires pre-approval of your activity to ensure it meets the admission requirements.

The Human Service and Social Justice Activity forms are submitted with the applications for admission to the program. Please do not submit the forms in advance of applying to the program.

Below is a list of agencies that have already been approved for human service activity:

We are currently building our list of pre-approved social justice organizations. Please discuss any areas of interest with your advisor.

Evaluation of Applications

After applications are received, they are distributed among BSW faculty for review and evaluation, using a rating sheet developed by the program, which attaches a point value to overall GPA, social work GPA, and references from the human service activity. Point values also are awarded to the essay and self-assessment forms to rate the level of student writing skills, motivation for a career in social work, appropriateness of career goals, and self-awareness. Admission decisions include acceptance, conditional acceptance, reject, or conduct an interview before rendering a decision. Interviews with students are used to clarify information in the application or to discuss issues that are raised by review of the application or by faculty who have had experience with the student. Serious questions about student suitability for entry into the social work profession would likely trigger an Academic Performance Review to enable the faculty to meet with the student and explore suitability issues further.
