Abstract

This article examines the impact of social work education on the social policy preferences of social work students through a panel study of 3 cohorts of students at universities in 2 countries—the United States and Israel. The findings of the study indicate that though the initial policy preferences of the students at the beginning of their studies at the 3 universities differed, by the end of their studies the students' preferences were similar and supportive of the welfare state model.
