Upper Division Application
While you may declare a major in Social Work as early as the freshman year, you must formally apply and be accepted into the Social Work Program by the end of the sophomore year. Admission to Upper Division coursework is based on a competitive review process.
The Daemen College Social Work Program is interested in accepting students who demonstrate strong potential for developing the academic and professional skills necessary to work as beginning generalist social work practitioners. Each student is required to submit an application which includes a personal statement, self-assessment, and two (2) letters of reference. Application materials will be reviewed by the Social Work Faculty as well as members of the Daemen College Social Work Community Advisory Board.
