Honors Paper

Page address:

As of Spring 2007, the Department no longer required a Senior Paper due to the other changes in the social work degree curriculum that took effect with the 06-07 Bulletin.

Students who are in the Honors Program, however, may choose to register for and write an Honors Paper (SOWK 495) under the guidance of a faculty advisor. Students interested in this option should talk with Social Work faculty members who have a research or practice interest that the student is also interested in learning more about. An independent/individualized project can be developed with the faculty member and the student may count this toward their Honors Program work.

Whether or not you are in the MSU Honors Program, students interested in pursing graduate school are strongly encouraged to do an Honors Paper (SOWK 495) or Individual Study (SOWK 499).
