The 2001 Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards: Issues and Opportunities for BSW Education

Irene Queiro-Tajalli, Katharine Byers, Edward Fitzgerald

Abstract


The Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS) combines
social work educational policies and accreditation standards within a single document.
The EPAS establishes guidelines for baccalaureate and masters’ level social
work education throughout the United States. In this article, the authors discuss the
implications of the EPAS for Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) programs. They focus
especially upon those aspects of the EPAS that relate to foundation-level program
objectives and curriculum content.
