About

The Social Work, Community Mental Health Concentration at California State University Fullerton prepares students for practice in a variety of mental health settings, including psychiatric hospitals, residential treatment, county mental health clinics, correctional institutions, substance abuse treatment and other specialized programs.

Overview

About this Degree

Advancement to classified standing and candidacy requires the student to maintain continued good academic standing in all coursework and field experiences. In the case of unsatisfactory academic performance, the chair of the Social Work Department, with the approval of the Office of Graduate Studies, shall recommend remediation or dismissal of a student.

Under special circumstances, a graduate student may be approved for a one-semester leave of absence or, with approval of the Social Work Department, for a two-semester leave. For such consideration, the student must be in good academic standing. 

Upon admission to the Social Work, Community Mental Health Concentration program at California State University Fullerton, each student is assigned to a faculty adviser. Advisers provide academic assistance, help students develop official study plans and monitor their progress throughout the duration of enrollment. Students must consult their adviser on a regular basis.
