Social Work Hybrid Program Gate and Field FAQ General Program Questions 1. Why is the BSSW program considered a hybrid program? This program includes both online and in-person instruction. All courses are offered in an online format with the exception of SOWK 355. This is the residential component of the program. Online students must come to LU’s campus to take this course. SOWK 355 is offered as a Winter intensive, a Summer intensive (scheduled for May 2017), and is also offered as a semester-long course during the Fall and Spring semesters. For those who plan to apply for Gate 1 and 2 in the Fall of 2016, this is the only course that you would be able to indicate that is not yet completed or in progress and you must indicate that you will take this in Winter session if you want to start junior field in this Spring. 2. What is the status of the accreditation process for the Social Work Program? The social work program at Liberty University was granted candidacy with the Council on Social Work Education in February of 2016. This means we made it through the first stage in our progress towards accreditation. This initial stage included us submitting several documents about our program as well as having a site visitor come to our campus and interview our faculty, staff, and students. We started the accreditation process in 2015 and the entire process takes 3 years to complete. We anticipate that our program will be accredited by the Council of Social Work Education by Spring of 2018, which will be before students graduate from the program. 3. Can I complete my field internship at my current place of employment? It is possible. The Department recognizes that some students may currently be employed at an agency that they hope to secure employment through as a social worker upon graduation. To support these students in their efforts, the Department will consider proposals from students who would like for their current place of employment to be considered as a junior and/or senior placement. The policies for employment-based placements are described in the field manual.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
