It’s track selection time here at GSSW. You choose a track before you begin coursework if you are an Advanced Standing student, and before 2nd year if you are a two year student. “Track” refers to whether you will study Community or Clinical practice and specializations within the clinical track.
I’ve chosen to go down the Clinical Families track, intend to get a Trauma Certificate, participate in the Denver Family Institutes certificate program (if I am admitted) and dabble a bit in Adult and Late Life courses. If I am admitted to DFI I hope to also work towards my LCSW and LMFT post-graduate.
Choosing a track can be challenging but the beautiful thing about Social Work is that choosing a track does NOT limited your career opportunities in the future and many people cross back and forth between clinical and community work throughout their careers.
