Social Work Segue
If you’re considering a career in social work, your educational path to EMU just became even more seamless. Before being admitted into the Bachelor of Social Work program at EMU, you’re required to complete four introductory courses with a grade of “C” or better. These courses are available on a rotating basis at EMU–Livonia. You can enroll in these courses while completing your community college coursework—simplifying your transfer to EMU and preparing you to join on-campus students in the program.
Upon completion, you’ll have a full picture of the kinds of career opportunities a BSW provides and the values, knowledge and skills on which professional social work is built.
