AN UNDERGRADUATE SOCIAL WORK EDUCATION MODEL FOR THE MULTIVERSITY.
AN UNDERGRADUATE LEVEL SOCIAL WORK PROGRAM IN A MULTIVERSITY SETTING (THE UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA) IS DESCRIBED, AND RESEARCH QUESTIONS RELATED TO THIS EDUCATIONAL MODEL ARE RAISED. THE PROGRAM OFFERS A SINGLE-TRACK SEQUENCE WITH INNER FLEXIBILITY TO MEET THE DIVERSE NEEDS OF A DIVERSE STUDENT BODY. THE INTERDISCIPLINARY CURRICULUM CENTERS AROUND THREE CORE COURSES WHICH PROVIDE THE PRIMARY SOURCE OF SOCIAL WORK IDENTIFICATION AND INFORMATION. INSTEAD OF FIELD WORK, THE PRIMARY EMPHASIS IS ON LABORATORY COMPONENTS OF CORE COURSES WHICH ENCOURAGE VARIOUS LEVELS AND TYPES OF COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT. ADVISING IS HANDLED BY PROGRAM SPECIALISTS. A STUDY SPONSORED BY THE NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF MENTAL HEALTH SEEKS TO ANSWER SEVERAL FUNDAMENTAL QUESTIONS ABOUT THE EDUCATIONAL MODEL PRESENTED. IT IS HOPED THAT THE RESEARCH EFFORTS OUTLINED IN THE PAPER WILL BE THE BEGINNING OF A SYSTEMATIC ATTEMPT TO GAIN GREATER UNDERSTANDING OF PRE-SOCIAL WORK EDUCATION IN A LARGE UNIVERSITY AND MEANS OF IMPROVING SUCH A PROGRAM. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE AMERICAN ORTHOPSYCHIATRIC ASSOCIATION CONVENTION, (44TH ANNUAL MEETING), WASHINGTON, D.C., MARCH, 1967. (SK)
