Students who have not yet taken SWRK 615: Introduction to Social Work Research may take the waiver exam.
Advance Registration is required for the waiver exam. Register online by Friday, October 21 at noon. Students will be notified of the exam location after the registration period ends.
The waiver exam will test the course material that is covered in SWRK 615: Introduction to Social Work Research. This will be an essay exam covering a number of questions on research concepts and processes as they relate to the field of social work. The exam will be graded on conceptual clarity and accuracy of the answers.
Students who pass the waiver exam will demonstrate that they have the knowledge of the course content covered in SWRK 615. Students who pass the exam will choose an elective course (for which they have the prerequisites) in place of SWRK 615. The exams will be graded before the end of the advanced registration period so that you can submit your spring course selection requests accordingly.
To get an idea about the content covered in SWRK 615, you may review the SWRK 615 syllabus from Spring 2016. Students who plan to take the exam are strongly advised to review the text used in the course (Monette, Sullivan, & DeJong, 2013, Applied Social Research: Tool for the Human Services, 9th Edition).
Registered students will be notified of the exam location prior to the exam date.
