Because our Social Work program has earned accreditation from the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE), which is the national accrediting body for all social work programs in the United States, students can feel confident that the Online Social Work program at Indiana Wesleyan University will prepare them for entry level practice in the field of social work. While the CSWE establishes and maintains national standards for all social work programs, each state reserves the right to establish their own standards for licensure to practice within their state borders. It is important to research and understand the proper licensing requirements for your respective state. The following links, which are organized by state, will be helpful as you seek state licensure for your work in the field of social work.
This evolution poses a new set of challenges for undergraduate accounting majors looking to enter the field with either a Bachelor of Science (BS), a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) or a Bachelor of Accountancy (BAC). To become marketable job applicants, students must demonstrate not only a well-balanced curriculum, but also professional experience that grants an understanding of the role an accountant plays in the current business climate. Luckily for students, most accounting programs understand the skills that need to be imparted to an individual upon graduation, and they have adapted their curriculum to involve the broad spectrum of materials that should be covered. Additionally, students may want to consider a minor in a subject like history, English or political science to further differentiate themselves from other candidates.
As a young adult, I pursued an associate of science degree with the intent of completing that program and making a career for myself. As I grew in my professional skills, I decided I wanted to expand my horizons and continue my education. This included starting coursework in a new field and major that quickly began to overwhelm me. My friend informed me about the RBA program at WVU. I decided to look into this for myself. After speaking with the helpful staff in the RBA programs office at WVU, I quickly realized this was just what I needed to complete my bachelor’s degree. Carol and Barbara gave me great advice to get started on a portfolio submission; as well as online classes and how to transfer credit from all of my other college experiences. The portfolio was a challenge, but I had help every step of the way.
