Specialized Learning Opportunities
Elizabethtown College offers externship opportunities during winter break in which students can gain experience in a supervised volunteer work situation. This program, though not a part of the Social Work curriculum, can afford additional experience for the student which is invaluable in building competence and awareness of the field. Students interested in externships should consult the Personal and Career Counseling Center.
The College is also affiliated with the Brethren Colleges Abroad (BCA) program. Students may register and attend classes in selected colleges throughout the world for credit which is then transferred to Elizabethtown College. Generally, these courses count for core credit. Several colleges have schools of social work which provide an international experience for our majors. Students interested in the BCA program should contact Dr. Sharon Trachte, Chair, Department of Modern Languages.
