Need to change your major?
If you've already started a degree program but would like to switch to studying social work instead, talk to your advisors as soon as possible. Core requirements for each degree program vary, but there are several ways your previous classes could count toward a degree in social work. Also keep in mind that a variety of backgrounds makes the social work field stronger. Although you may feel as though those 2 years of business classes you just completed were a waste of time, they’re actually quite valuable in your new social work career.
