Bachelor of Social Work (BSW)

If you are a compassionate individual with an interest in human diversity and a desire to help others, then a bachelor of social work can help you reach your goals. Our curriculum prepares students for positions in the social work profession and can provide you with the opportunity to advance in higher education. We train students to work effectively with individuals, families, groups, communities and organizations around the country. Completing a BSW degree allows for immediate access to employment opportunities in fields such as child advocacy, public relations, human resources, public health and wellness promotion, justice system, and services to veterans. 

Our faculty are active members of human service organizations throughout their communities. We seek to benefit the lives of every resident in our city and state through our research, teaching and service.
