Pre-Master of Social Work (MSW) Program

The Augustana College pre-MSW program is not a graduation major, so a major in another field must be completed if the student intends to graduate with a Bachelor of Arts degree. We recommend a major in Sociology and Anthropology because of the high number of required courses from this department for the pre-MSW program, although other majors could be completed in the pre-MSW program.

PRE-MSW TRACK RECOMMENDED COURSES:

1. SOAN-227 Social Statistics or equivalent from another department, e.g. PSYC-240 Statistics (4 credits)
2. SOAN-221 Inequality in America (4 credits)
3. SOAN-333 Refugees, Rights and Responsibilities (4 credits)
4. PSYC-100 Introduction to Psychology (4 credits)
5. 300-level elective in any of the following disciplines: Sociology and Anthropology; Psychology; Public Health; Non-Profit Leadership Development; Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies; or Education, through consultation with the pre-MSW advisor (4 credits)
6. CORE “experiential internship” in a social service organization, through consultation with a CORE career coach (1-3 credits)

The following experiential courses also are recommended and could satisfy the experiential internship requirement: PSYC-130 Victim Advocacy (2 credits); PSYC-135 Bystander Intervention (1 credit).

Grade-Point Average Notation: All courses listed in the catalog as required courses for any major and/or minor, including those courses outside of the department or with a different subject coding, are considered part of the major and will count in the grade point average. Some departments may have additional grade requirements for the courses offered within their department. Recommended supporting courses that are optional and not required may also count in the major depending on the program. For more information see your department chair or the degree requirements for Bachelor of Arts and information on Majors/Minors.
