What made you decide to enroll in the School of Social Work at SDSU?
I studied Child and Family Development at SDSU for my undergraduate degree. I loved the school and the area, so when I was applying to graduate school SDSU was one of my top choices. I also had the opportunity to speak with current SDSU MSW students before making my final decision. Everyone shared about how much they had grown during their 2 years here and how dedicated the staff and professors were. Since I have been in the program, I have discovered that those other students were right. They entire School of Social Work Staff is not only dedicated to the program, but to us as students as well.
What have been your most memorable experience in the School?
My most memorable experience so far has to be going to Lobby Days. Going to Sacramento and learning about the legislative process was a great learning experience. It was awesome to see students from Schools of Social Work across the state work together and lobby some really important bills.
What are your plans after graduation?
After graduation, I hope to get a job in the mental health field and become licensed. In the long term, I would like to work with families who have a child that has been diagnosed with a developmental disability.
What are some of your favorite aspects of the program?
Some of my favorite aspects of the program are the Direct Practice classes, Lobby Days, and the dedication of both the students and staff.
Describe why you would recommend SDSU to potential students.
One of the main reasons I would recommend SDSU to potential students is the dedication of the faculty. The professors in this program truly care about their students and are there to provide the support necessary for their students to succeed. Another reason I would recommend this program would be the variety of electives offered. From Motivational Interviewing to International Social Work to Grief and Loss, there are options for students to focus on their area of interest.
