Social Work and Gerontology Course Counting
Because the Associate of Science in Gerontology (GERT) and the BA in
Social Work (SOWK) are entirely different majors and degree programs in
the Social Work Department, the department requests exception to the
general rule that courses from the major department cannot count as
general education courses.
Specifically, we request that Social Work majors be allowed to use
Gerontology 100 and 210 as G3 General Education Courses, and that
Gerontology majors be allowed to use Social Work 102 and 211 as G3
General Education Courses.
The precedent for this exception is in Sociology/Anthropology, where
Sociology majors may use Anthropology courses so approved as general
education courses, and vice versa.
