Requirements for admissions to the Bachelor of Social Work are as follows:
During the second year of the program, each student is required to complete a Field Placement, or Practicum in a social service agency. This placement site will be arranged by the Coordinator of Practicum and Field Experience in collaboration with each individual student, aiming to align with the student’s professional goals and development needs. As such, each student will complete a Social Work Field Practicum Application along with an updated portfolio. Students will present their portfolio and subsequently be interviewed by the Coordinator of Practicums and Field Experiences and committee. Field Placement options are discussed and a tentative plan is created for Field Placement based on the student's interest and needs.
Students are expected to possess a computer throughout the duration of their program. Student computers must be able to run a supported browser for Pearson LearningStudio. Students should be able to produce, send, and receive documents that are compatible within the two most recent offerings of Microsoft Office to complete most of the assignments. IWU will offer support to students on only these two offerings of office software. Computer and Internet connection may need to be fast enough in some courses to watch streaming videos, participate in live meetings, upload large files, install software, and listen to audio lectures. In addition to these minimum expectations, participation in a College of Adult and Professional Studies course or program may entail additional computing and/or technology requirements.
