SW award

To be eligible for departmental honors in social work, students must meet the minimum college GPA requirement of 3.000 overall and 3.500 in the major. Of students who are qualified, up to four students will be awarded departmental honors, each recognized for distinction in one of three areas: research, practice, or overall academic achievement. Distinguished research performance is demonstrated by the completion of high quality research products in SW 241 and subsequent superior independent or collaborative research; distinction in practice is demonstrated by superior performance evaluations of practice competencies in SW 333, SW 334, and SW 381; and overall academic achievement is demonstrated by the highest overall GPA.
