Overview

Bachelor of Social Work

The Bachelor of Social Work four-year degree provides graduates with the theoretical knowledge and skills they need to work with individuals, families, and communities. 

A balance of general liberal arts education in the first two years, followed by a professional social work education in the final two years, through both courses and practical field placements, provides the knowledge and skills for a generalist social work practice.

Students apply to the program after their second year of a Bachelor of Arts having earned 60 credit hours

The field practicums supplement courses, with one focusing on social action at the community/organization level, and a second in a clinical setting with local social agencies, supported by experienced field instructors. 

In addition, a research methods course helps students keep pace with the changing landscape of social work scholarship and prepares them for professional practice.
