The Social Work Department offers a range of programs for students. There is a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree that can be completed as a full-time or part-time students. Majoring in Social Work requires a year-long field placement in a community agency during senior year. Students that major outside of Social Work may choose to minor in Social Welfare; however, this minor does not allow students to graduate and practice as a social worker. The Department also offers international opportunities.
Social Work students benefit from the College's location in the heart of the City. The Program encourages students to interact with the community through volunteering, service-learning, and field placements. Social Work student organizations also hold donation drives and bake sales for community agencies.
In addition to the opportunities in the community for our students, the department invites community partners to campus as guest speakers in classes, presenters at our bi-ennial conference, and as members on our Advisory Board.
Faculty are also engaged in the community as Board members and through community projects and research.
Our Graduates are making a difference in our community! Many are employed in human service agencies and X% attended graduate school to complete their MSW immediately after graduating. Learn more about our alumni and educational and professional opportunities post-graduation here.
