A Study of Preprofessional Social Work Education at Brooklyn College With Emphasis on Its Pre-Social Work Counseling Program
The realization of this fact led the two organizations to conduct surveys which have attempted to clarify how preprofessional (undergraduate) education meets the needs of : I. those who desire to become familiar with social work as part of their general education; 2. those who wish to qualify for positions in social welfare agencies for which graduate professional, education is not now required; 3. those who are preparing to enter professional schools of social work.Timeliness and Importance of the Investigation. The timeliness of this study is demonstrated by the fact that there has been in existence at Brooklyn College a "Pre-Social Work Counseling Office" for the past six years which has made a contribution to this program. Functioning as an interdepartmental agency and sponsored by a Committee consisting of the representatives of the Departments of Sociology, Psychology, Home Economics, Political Science, Economies, and formerly under the direct chairmanship of Professor Herbert H. Stroup, it has rendered service not only to the student body, but to the field as well. A complete history of this organization has never been written and it is with this in view that the writer has taken up to the task to do research about this particular agency for the period mentioned. Concurrently, this study is of prominent interest at this time because of the prospect of planning for the founding of a public school of social work at Brooklyn College.
