The School of Social Work seeks to provide an exciting and challenging program that prepares undergraduate students for a career in social work. We have maintained accreditation by the Council on Social Work Education CSWE since 1974 and continually offer high-quality education.

The profession of social work is devoted to the enhancement of human well-being and to the alleviation of poverty and oppression. Social workers strive to promote the empowerment and well being of individuals, families, communities, and organizations in an increasingly global society. Bachelor level social workers are skilled in advocacy, case management, group work, and are often employed by healthcare facilities, the Department of Mental Health, Department of Human Services, Office of Juvenile Affairs, and a wide variety of non-profit agencies.

BASW applicants enter our program having completed a set of prerequisite courses included in sixty 1000 and 2000 level hours, then begin two years of social work courses to complete the Bachelor's degree.
