Students studying social work at Carthage have many opportunities to enrich their education.
January Term, or J-Term, is a month-long period of study in January in which all academic departments offer innovative courses on campus, as well as study tours in other countries. While many business students use J-Term to fill an academic requirement, others gain valuable global experience by traveling abroad. Carthage accounting and finance professors regularly lead study tours to such destinations as China, Sweden, and England, where students meet executives and see firsthand how global businesses operate.
Carthage accounting and finance students can get involved in a number of student organizations dedicated to putting what’s learned in the classroom into practice. Join Velocity Consulting, the Carthage Accounting Association, Volunteer Income Tax Assistant (VITA), the Financial/Investment Club, and more.
All social work majors complete a community-based research project for their senior thesis. Other options include the paid Summer Undergraduate Research Experience. Many of our students present their work at the campus-wide Celebration of Scholars or at professional conferences.
