B.A. Social Work Curriculum

In addition to meeting the standards and requirements of the College of Arts and Sciences, degree candidates must complete additional requirements with the department of Sociology, Anthropology, Social Work and Criminal Justice. All programs are planned in consultation with a department adviser who may modify the program in view of the students' backgrounds and objectives. 

Please note: Classes and program requirements are subject to change. Students who enroll at Seton Hall will follow the catalogue guidelines for the year they matriculate. Catalogues for each year are generally released in the late summer.
