Finding Course Materials (ARES)

ARES is our electronic course reserve system. Many (but not all!) of your course readings are in ARES.

To add your course, or see if you have an ARES component of your course, follow these steps:

1. Go to ARES

2. Select SEARCH COURSE from the side menu.

3. Search only by department! Make sure it says Social Work, and click GO.

4. You'll see a list of all social work courses. Add the course you need with the green plus sign.

5. You're done!

IMPORTANT NOTE: You won't see your individual course instructor listed. Only the lead instructor is listed. That's because all sections of a course use the same readings, so just add the course with the same course number (like SOWK 546).
