Advanced Standing

Advanced Standing Curriculum

The Advanced Standing summer intersession starts with the history of social welfare as an anchor to examine social problems and society’s attempts to address them. In addition, the Social Justice course examines different theories of justice and structural inequality and helps students articulate a personal-professional stance toward social work practice for social justice. Lastly, the Advanced Field Practicum Seminar course assists new students in transitioning into their fall quarter. From Fall Quarter, Advanced Standing students join the Specialized Practice curriculum and take the same second-year courses as the 2-Year MSW students.
