Additional Requirements

The social work program has been accredited by the Council on Social Work Education since 1982. Students interested in majoring in social work must make written application for acceptance into the major after completing SWK 150 – Social Work and Social Justice with a B- (2.7) or better. A Concordia GPA of 2.5 is required for admission to the program. Once admitted, students need to pass all required social work courses with a C- or better, maintain a 2.5 Concordia GPA and a 2.5 GPA in social work courses to maintain active status in the program. All students planning to major in social work should request from the registrar to have a faculty advisor from the social work program. Because courses follow a sequence, transfer students or students deciding on the major during or after the fall semester of their sophomore year should meet with the social work program director as soon as possible to develop an educational plan.
