Steve Hicks School of Social Work
Students in the School of Social Work can take advantage of opportunities to take courses, research and participate in service-learning or internships abroad to broaden their education, expand their expertise and strengthen their portfolio as they launch their careers.
To streamline research in selecting a study abroad program, we have highlighted programs that feature strong coursework options. Use the following guidance as a starting point for identifying programs that will best fit your goals. For those seeking minor or certificate credit, the major guide can serve as an important tool in locating partners that may have pre-approved coursework that can satisfy requirements.
In order to have the best experience abroad, students should meet with their academic advisors early in their undergraduate career. Students should peruse the Education Abroad website resources, including the Funding page and the Events calendar. Students across all majors are encouraged to regularly consult their Academic Advisor and the My Credit Abroad (MyCA) database for course equivalents. Students may also identify courses at institutions of interest for pre-approval.
As social work students prepare for careers in direct human service roles within public and private organizations, intercultural skills are essential. Projects with Underserved Communities, is a unique program that combines community needs and student enrichment in an innovative project-based, service-learning collaboration between Texas Global, the Cockrell School of Engineering, and the School of Social Work.
The School of Social Work also features a London Maymester: Roots of Social and Economic Injustice: An International Perspective. The primary course listing is 460K but also carries cross-listings of S W 495K and WGS 441.
