The Social Work Baccalaureate Program’s Student Guide for individuals considering undergraduate study in social work. The guide is not intended to substitute for the UMBC catalog or advising sessions with a faculty member. Rather, the guide serves as a resource and reference book for students interested and enrolled in the Baccalaureate Social Work Program. It provides important information on many topics and serves as a reference on matters related to the course sequencing and the program’s general functioning. Later in the educational process, students will receive the Field Education Manual, which will be an added resource for continued development in becoming a social worker.
