Who will help me pick my classes?
All social work majors are assigned an advisor. Your advisor will meet with you once a semester to help you select your classes and answer any questions you have about the program or the profession of social work. You are encouraged to meet with your advisor any time you have concerns or need a little help along the way. Your advisor is your go-to person in the social work faculty.
How will I find about about important dates and department news?
All Department of Social Work students are required to have a WestConn e-Mail account. Students are advised to check their e-mail frequently for announcements and communications including information about important events, meetings, scholarships, current courses, new courses, Junior and Senior application deadlines, etc. The Department will communicate with students ONLY through the WestConn e-mail system, and not through students’ personal e-mail addresses.
