The Bachelor of Social Work - BSW

Social work is more than just a major, it is a culture and a way of looking at the world. When I first became a social work major, I knew very little about the profession, but as I have learned more, I see that it is nothing short of an organized, professional way of bringing about positive change in the world through respecting the dignity and worth of each person. Social work is unique because it is the only profession whose end goal is to make itself unnecessary.- Dan (class of 2005)

The undergraduate social work curriculum is designed to prepare students for (1) generalist social work practice, under supervision, in public welfare agencies, general and mental health hospitals, courts and probation departments, family and children services agencies, neighborhood and community action agencies, and other settings; (2) graduate social work education; and (3) leadership roles in community efforts in social welfare.
