The major in social work is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education. Students who successfully complete the program receive a bachelor of arts degree from the Camden College of Arts and Sciences. The program prepares students for generalist social work practice and proficient in the skills of engagement, assessment, intervention, and evaluation on the micro, mezzo, and macro levels. The focus for practice addresses work with special populations including the underserved, marginalized, and oppressed groups. Students acquire the knowledge base, professional ethics, values, and skills to work effectively within individual, family, group, organizational, and community levels of practice. The program also prepares students for graduate study in social work and related fields. Major requirements in social work can be completed through day, evening, and some online courses.

Students are admitted to the major at the beginning of their junior year, after having completed approximately 60 credits of coursework. Students should plan to apply to the major early in the spring semester of their sophomore year. A cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 is required for acceptance into the program. The application for the social work major is available online. Inquiries about the major should be directed to the director of the social work program.

Following acceptance into the program, all social work majors are assigned a faculty adviser within the School of Social Work. To continue in this major, students must maintain a 3.0 grade-point average in social work courses. In order to graduate, students must have grades of C or better and a 3.0 cumulative grade-point average in all social work core-content courses, and a 2.0 cumulative grade-point average in the courses making up the liberal arts foundation.
