Puppybraille/Nickie social work major

I got some great news today! I'm officially accepted as a social work major. Until now, I've been what they refer to as a social work student, meaning that I can take social work classes, but am not actually a social work major. Obviously, since we work with vulnerable populations, we need to be sure that social work is a good match for each of us. As do the faculty. And I was accepted!!!!

Congratulations!!! So, when do you graduate then? Or have I missed something... are you doing a minor as well (in Canada you have a major and a minor as well)...

Thanks, to answer your question, being accepted as a major means that I can continue my work to become a social worker. It's kind of like after the home interview. If you pass that, and all else goes well, you get to go to guide dog training. But that doesn't mean necessarily that you will get a dog because you still have to get through the training.

The trick is that we apply to the major in our third year of school.

Thanks for the clarification, I think it is different up in Canada, but my college training is also very different as well.

Yeah, it can also be different between majors. Social workers work with vulnerable people, so they are pretty careful about selecting students for their programs. But I am not sure how selective other schools are.

Thank you! And call me at home if you're bored tomorrow or anytime this week/weekend. I am going mad with intravertedness.

Thank you! I love that with social work, if I change my mind, there are other cool fields to go into.
