Students in Schools of Social Work. A Study of Characteristics and Factors Affecting Career Choice and Practice Concentration.
Golden, Deborah; And Others
This book is a report of a comprehensive survey made in 1966 of first-year graduate social work students. The survey gathered information about (1) the age, sex, race, religion, socioeconomic status, and prior education and academic achievements of these students; (2) the factors that bring people into social work and lead them to undertake graduate professional education, with special attention to the impact of work experience in social work and related areas, the nation's and profession's current emphasis on broad social issues, and the increasingly active and organized recruitment efforts of the social work profession; (3) the post-graduation career plans of the entering class; (4) financial aid for first-year graduate students; and (5) the elements involved in method concentration selection both in relation to the career and method choice process and the differences among the students in various methods. Wherever possible, comparison of this study was made with a similar study performed in 1960. (Author)
