Augsburg College

Social workers make a difference every day not just every four years. They make differences in the lives of children, families, the homeless, and seniors. [+]

Bachelor in Social Work Making a difference every day Social workers make a difference every day not just every four years. They make differences in the lives of children, families, the homeless, and seniors. The make a difference in the communities they live in. At Augsburg, the social work department celebrates intentional diversity, the rights of all, and encourages the BSW students to go out and make the difference – be the difference, every day. ABOUT SOCIAL WORK There are many official definitions for social work. The state of Minnesota defines it as: “Practice of social work” means: “Working to maintain, restore, or improve behavioral, cognitive, emotional, mental, or social functioning of clients, in a manner that applies accepted professional social work knowledge, skills, and values, including the person-in-environment perspective.” The Dictionary of Social Work says, The applied science of helping people achieve an effective level of psychosocial functioning and effecting society changes to enhance the well-being of all people. The National Association of Social Workers (NASW) says, Social Work is the professional activity of helping individuals, groups, or communities enhance or restore their capacity for social functioning and creating societal conditions favorable to this goal. And the International Federation of Social Workers ratified this definition: The social work profession promotes social change, problem solving in human relationships and the empowerment and liberation of people to enhance well-being. Utilising theories of human behaviour and social systems, social work intervenes at the points where people interact with their environments. Principles of human rights and social justice are fundamental to social work. But whatever the source the common element is action. Social work practice is the act of professional involvement with people in need of help. Social workers aid people of all types, not solving their problems for them, but empowering individuals, families and entire communities to function socially. Social workers help people with the day-to-day challenges of life and the mid and long-term pursuit of their goals. Social workers also advocate and organize for social change for the well-being of their clients. Finally, social workers are life-long students of the interaction of people, institutions and the larger social environment locally and globally. “I think social work is teaching people how to help themselves.” - Social Work Sophomore “Social work is making connections. Connecting clients to services, connecting questions to answers. It takes some thinking.” - Social Work Junior “It’s helping people, but through a system. It’s easier to figure out what’s right to do and when.” -Social Work Senior DEGREE REQUIREMENTS Bachelor of Social Work The BSW degree consists of ten upper level courses and a total of seven supporting courses.

Students and staff benefit from the rich opportunities Sabancı University offers, such as tight interdisciplinary links between faculties, state-of-the-art research facilities and infrastructure, and independent research support and funding. The minor in psychology program equips the students with a strong base in psychology and develops a scientific understanding in a wide range of its subfields. The program introduces the students to the contemporary issues and research questions that can have implications for a variety of disciplines, providing a sound formation that will prepare interested students for graduate study in psychology and cognitive science. It is also designed to meet the needs of students who recognize that an understanding and analysis of individual psychological processes is an important component of their education and overall career goals. Program Requirements may vary according to the year of first enrollment. FAQ 1. Can I take psychology courses before I declare the minor? Will the courses I took before declaration be counted towards the minor? Answer: Yes. 2. I took the psychology courses as free electives before declaring the minor. After I declare the minor, do they still count as free electives towards my major? Answer: Yes. Those courses will have double roles. They will be free electives for your major and electives for the minor program. It also means that you don’t have to do an overload of classes (take extra credits) to get a minor. 3. Is there any fee to apply for the psychology minor? Answer: No, there is no fee for application or any additional fee in the annual tuition. 4. Would the courses I withdrew from (W courses) prevent me from applying to the minor? Answer: No, only a fail grade (F) will restrict your application. 5. Will there be a special quota for the minor students when we sign up for courses? Answer: Currently, there is no special quota. Please talk to the instructor of the course if you are not able to add the required minor course. 6. My GPA is below 3.00. Can I still apply? Answer: The cumulative and semester GPA must be at least 3.00 at the time of application. However, you can still take psychology classes, and if you improve your GPA, you will be able to apply for the psychology minor. 7. If I decide to do the minor, does it mean that I need to take 6 extra courses (in addition to my major courses) in order to graduate? Answer: No, please refer to answer 2 above. The minor courses will act as elective courses for your major. 8. What is the latest semester when I can declare psychology minor? Answer: YOK’s requirement is that students can apply for the Minor Honors Programs as early as the beginning of the term in which they declare their major and until the beginning of the sixth term they’re registering. 9. Can I apply for graduate (masters or PhD) programs in psychology after getting the minor? Answer: Yes. You will certainly be qualified to apply. Having a psychology minor would make your application stronger. 10. How can I benefit from having psychology minor if I am not pursuing a psychology career? Answer: Psychology is the general field that is concerned with human nature, behavior and cognition, which has a lot of intersections with other fields. It covers various topics related to visual arts (e.g., perception of arts, aesthetic preferences, visual cognition), cultural studies and sociology (e.g., social behaviors, group dynamics, identity), economics and political science (e.g., risky decision making, negotiation, political attitudes), management and marketing (e.g., organizational behavior, leadership, categorization), computer and natural sciences (e.g., cognition, artificial intelligence, neuropsychology) and etc. You will also get training in behavioral research methods, which is a major asset in a range of professional fields. 11. Will the knowledge of psychology help me in my personal life? Answer: Certainly, the knowledge of psychology will stimulate your curiosity why people behave as they do and provide you with a better awareness of yourself and people around you, which can transform your everyday life.
