Undergraduate Social Work Education for Practice: A Report on Curriculum Content and Issues.
Glick, Lester J., Ed.
This publication is a report of the findings of four task forces that addressed a number of the currently unanswered questions in undergraduate social work education. The project was conceived out of the conviction that if in the future students are to enter practice immediately following receipt of the baccalaureate degree, the curriculum for such students should explicitly prepare them for practice in addition to providing a general education consistent with emerging patterns of liberal arts education. Since professional curricula should logically start with a clear description of the role performance expected of the practitioner, the first phase of the project consisted of an attempt to find answers to the questions (1) What can a baccalaureate worker do well in a social work agency? and (2) What are the typical assignments given to baccalaureate workers?
