McCarthy, Katherine M. – Journal of Teaching in Social Work, 2020

Apgar, Dawn – Journal of Teaching in Social Work, 2020
While much is written about the professionalization of practitioners with bachelor's degrees in social work, there is a void in the literature with regard to the role of those with undergraduate minors in social work. The few articles on social work minor programs are dated, yet the number of such programs is increasing, but with little…
