Aim of the BSW program

The aim of the program is to give the students the knowledge that will enable them to plan and execute purposeful and methodical intervention, and to exercise a system of considerations in making professional decisions to improve peoples’ welfare, through:

  1. Developing awareness and understanding of the individual, his/her psychosocial development and place in society, and society’s roles and commitments towards the individual. Imparting the system of values within which the profession of social work operates and which forms the basis and guidance for setting service goals and deciding on directions of intervention.
  2. Familiarity with and understanding of social and economic processes that affect individuals in society in general, and in the State of Israel in particular, as well as understanding basic concepts in the social and behavioral sciences relevant to individual and social behavior, from which professional knowledge in social work derives.
  3. Understanding the heterogeneity and unique needs of various groups in society.
  4. Familiarity with the welfare services system, including special services for specific social groups.
  5. Knowledge and skill in choosing and operating various methods of intervention, intended to ameliorate and/or prevent unwanted behaviors and situations among individuals, families, groups and the community.
  6. The ability to choose, operate and evaluate professional knowledge according to scientific-research considerations.
  7. Understanding of processes of deriving general professional knowledge and conducting research, as well as skill in using these processes to monitor and evaluate services and professional interventions.
  8. Imparting professional responsibility, based on criteria of effectiveness and efficiency.
  9. Imparting awareness of the need for continuing evaluation and updating of the professional knowledge and skills of the social worker, in light of society’s needs and those of his/her clients, and in light of developments in professional knowledge.

According to the program, students may study at the School of Social Work and their choice of an additional department in the humanities.

The additional knowledge will enrich and vary research and practice in the fields of social work and social welfare. The program will enable students to engage with intellectual and research content in a wide range of topics with practical channels of social and personal significance.

Acceptance requirements:

Excellent students who meet the acceptance cuts of both the School of Social Work and Social Welfare and the Faculty of Humanities are invited to apply for the program. Up to ten students, with the highest acceptance cuts, will be chosen from these candidates.

Joint Program in Social Work and Law

 

Joint Program in Social Work and Law

2014

Students at the School of Social Work and Social Welfare can study towards a joint undergraduate degree in law and social work. Students who complete this program will receive a diploma signed by both deans that will—subject to the rules of the Israel Bar Association and the Council of Social Workers—allow them to work in both professions.

 

Structure of the joint track:

The extent of study required for the joint degree is at least 209 credits, of which at least 115 credits are to be in law and at least 96 credits are to be in social work (66 credits in academic courses and 28 credits in practical training). The smaller extent of studies in social work is conditional upon taking courses in law that contribute to the student’s training in social work as well, therefore the identity of the courses taken and their extent in each field must be approved in advance by an academic committee comprising a representative of the School of Social Work and Social Welfare and a representative of the Faculty of Law.

 

Acceptance requirements for the program:

The following may be accepted to the program:

  • Students who have completed their first year in law with an average of at least 82;
  • Students who have completed their first year of social work with an average of at least 85 and who meet the acceptance requirements of the Faculty of Law;
  • Students with particularly high acceptance data (meeting the requirements of joint program 402) may begin the program in their first year of study.

 

Duration of study:

The duration of study for students with especially high acceptance data who are accepted to the program already in their first year is four years, and for students who are accepted to the program in their second year—four and a half years.

Please also consult the Faculty of Law’s yearbook, part 2: Procedures of the Faculty of Law.

Regarding courses in law, the student will take the classes intended for students in joint programs, subject to the detailed instructions of the Faulty of Law yearbook.

 

Order of studies:

Student who meet the criteria for acceptance to the first year of law school—and who are interested in this program—will begin their studies in the Faculty of Law. If they meet the conditions for progressing to second-year law in the joint programs, they will begin studying first-year social work in parallel to second-year law.

Students who were accepted to the joint programs in law (track number 402) are permitted (but not required) to begin studying social work already in their first year. To clarify which courses in social work are required in their first year, contact the program’s advisor, Dr. Avishi Benish avishi.benish@mail.huji.ac.il

Professional training

 

Professional training in the field is organized in the framework of study centers. The study centers focus on various spheres of social work according to populations and/or unique problems.

Each study center is managed by a coordinator, together with a team of counsellors.

Field work has three components:

  1. Practical work, within the framework of the training site to which the student has been assigned;
  2. Individual guidance at the training sites or at the university, in coordination with the counsellor;
  3. A bi-weekly or monthly workshop for all students at the learning center, given by the coordinator.

Participation is compulsory—the grade “active participation” is a condition for a passing grade in practical training.
