Southeast Missouri State University

The Southeast Social Work program is fully accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) www.cswe.org . The Department of Social Work uses a competency-based approach to education. Competency-based education focuses on desired learning outcomes (competencies) in a variety of skill, value and knowledge areas directly assocaited with competent generalist social work practice. More specifically, the Social Work Program's curriculum is organized around ten core competencies and their requisite set of practice behaviors.

All Council on Social Work Education programs measure and report student learning outcomes. Students are assessed on their mastery of the competencies that comprise the accreditation standards of the Council on Social Work Education. These competencies are dimensions of social work practice that all social workers are expected to master during their professional training. A measurement benchmark is set by the social work programs for each competency. An assessment score at or above that benchmark is considered by the program to represent mastery of that particular competency.
