GENERAL INFORMATION

The Social Work program started at Memorial University of Newfoundland in 1963 offering a two-year diploma in Public Welfare. In 1965 the B.A. (Social Welfare) degree was initiated and continued until 1970. The present Bachelor of Social Work program, which was established in 1970, is accredited by the Canadian Association of Schools of Social Work.

The program requires a four-year period of university study beyond the First Year. In keeping with Memorial University of Newfoundland’s and the School of Social Work’s traditional commitments to serve the people of Newfoundland and Labrador within a global context, all social work courses are designed and delivered on a philosophical base of humanism and social justice. This is accomplished through the application of anti-oppression practice principles in an empowering teaching and learning environment within the context of critical thinking.

The majority of courses are taught on campus with selected courses occasionally taught by distance delivery. Distance delivery means instruction will not take place in a regular classroom. Instead, the course will be delivered using any or all of web-based format, traditional correspondence (reading packages, mailed assignments), and teleconference.

The program’s aim is to educate social workers with broadly-based generalist skills in working with individuals, families, communities and groups. Since a majority of our students will work in this province, special emphasis is placed on local needs and on social work in rural settings. Graduates are also prepared for work in larger urban centres.

In addition to course work, students are required to complete two supervised field placements which are an integral part of the program. Students are expected to accept placements in settings throughout the province. In the fourth year students spend four days per week in the Fall Term in the field. In the fifth year students spend one full term in the field. The field component is designed to provide students with a broadened experience of social work in natural practice settings and to give maturing students an opportunity to test out and develop their educational interests and career goals.

The Bachelor of Social Work degree qualifies the graduate for beginning professional practice in social work. The objectives of the undergraduate program are the achievement of (1) a liberal education involving general knowledge of people and nature, use of analytical and critical competence and personal social responsibility, and (2) the learning of the fundamental knowledge, values and skills necessary for professional practice.

The curriculum in Social Work draws upon the substance and analytical processes of the social and behavioural sciences and of the humanities. Consequently it is essential that all Social Work students complete courses in various disciplines defined as prerequisite to particular social work studies, and beyond that, select among studies which are recommended as significantly related to the general objectives of or to particular foci in social work study. Students, however, are cautioned to give careful attention to the regulations of other University Faculties and Schools. Not all students applying for admission to the School of Social Work will necessarily be admitted, so it is advisable not to obstruct an alternative study program in making choices among courses.

The School of Social Work may deliver special offerings of the Bachelor of Social Work, Diploma and/or other programs of the school to identified groups of out-of-province students where numbers warrant. These offerings will be self supporting, and therefore subject to an additional one-time non-refundable tuition fee as approved by the Board of Regents, and payable on first registration following formal admission to the program. Students will also pay appropriate tuition fees for each course registration during their tenure in the program.

Admission to the special offerings of these programs will be competitive, using the same procedures and standards that are in place for students applying to the St. John’s campus program(s).

Subject to approval by the Committee on Undergraduate Studies for the School of Social Work, students admitted to an out-of-province program offering may apply to transfer to the equivalent program on the St. John’s campus. In such instances, the fee structure under which the student was admitted will not change. Subject to approval by the Committee on Undergraduate Studies for the School of Social Work, students admitted to a St. John’s based program offering may apply to transfer to the equivalent out-of-province program. These students will be required to pay a pro-rated one-time fee upon formal transfer to the special offering.

Approved applicants to the School of Social Work will be admitted in Fall semester only.

NOTE: Academic Standards and Promotion regulations outlined below shall apply between the date of application and the subsequent Fall semester.

Applicants for readmission to the School of Social Work must complete a School of Social Work application and submit it to the Office of the Registrar by March 1 for Fall semester readmission, February 1 for Spring semester readmission, and October 1 for Winter semester readmission.

2. Students who have not registered for courses at Memorial University of Newfoundland for either of the two semesters immediately preceding their application for admission/readmission to the School of Social Work must complete a general application for admission/readmission to the University and submit it to the Office of the Registrar prior to the deadline date as outlined in the University Diary.
   
3. Applicants must have achieved an average of at least 65% in the courses comprising the last 30 credit hours completed by the deadline date for application.

4. Admission and readmission to the School of Social Work is on the basis of competition for a limited number of places. Selection of candidates will be based on academic standing, relevant work/volunteer experience, and personal suitability for a career in social work. Academic standing for the purpose of selection of candidates is defined as the candidate’s overall academic performance, average in the last 30 credit hours, and in the 45 prerequisite credit hours noted below. The School may, at its discretion, give preference to applicants with special needs, provided that they have met the minimum grade and course requirements for admission to the School.

In addition, in accordance with ACADEMIC STANDARDS AND PROMOTION regulations, a minimum grade of 65% is required in each of Social Work 2510 and 2700.

**Students who have completed Psychology 2025 may not obtain credit for either Psychology 2010 or Psychology 2011. They will, however, be required to complete Psychology 2012 and 3 additional credit hours in Psychology beyond first year level.

7. Students transferring into the Social Work program from other recognized universities must meet the UNIVERSITY REGULATIONS - ADMISSION/READMISSION TO THE UNIVERSITY (UNDERGRADUATE) of this university, and apply in competition to the School. A detailed assessment of the student’s transcript(s) will be made to determine course equivalents.

8. An unsuccessful applicant has the right to appeal against the decision of the Admissions Committee not to offer him/her a place, if it is felt by the applicant that the decision was reached on the grounds other than those specified in paragraphs 1-7 above. The appeal should be made in writing within fourteen days of the notification of the decision and should be directed to the Director of the School of Social Work. The letter should state clearly and fully the grounds of the appeal. If the Director, in consultation with the Registrar, judges the grounds to be sufficient, the formal appeals mechanism will be initiated.

Although consideration will be given to all factors affecting the location and type of field placements, the final decision regarding placement rests with the School. Students have the same obligation and responsibility for financial self-support in field placement as they do for other academic locations. Placements for most students will include residence in a centre away from St. John's, Mount Pearl, and Corner Brook normally in the final year of the program.

10. A student who voluntarily withdraws from field placement with the prior approval of the Field Administrator and the Committee on Undergraduate Studies, cannot be guaranteed a second placement during that term. In this case, the student will be awarded a grade of DR (drop) for field placement courses and will be required to complete another placement prior to the continuation of course work.
