Biographical or Historical Information
One of the reasons social work branched off into its own program was due to the increasingly stringent professional accreditation requirements for social work instruction that did not fit well with the Department of Sociology's liberal arts curriculum. Also, a majority of the Department's majors were focused on social work; however, they were being taught by sociologists.
The program became the Department of Social Work in 1980 and in 1987, the Department left the College of Arts and Sciences to join the School of Home Economics (now the School of Human Environmental Sciences). In 1997, the Department implemented a collaborative master's degree graduate program in social work with North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University.
