  • Social Work is a licensed profession. Social work employment is expected to grow by over 12% this decade!  Social Work students gain real-world experience during 600 hours of "field education" (juniors complete a 200-hour placement and seniors complete a 400-hour placement), learning and practicing the knowledge, values, and skills of a social worker in a wide range of community-based settings and supervised by trained, agency-based social workers. BSW graduates are prepared for generalist social work practice, including:
* Social justice advocacy * Child, family & school social work
* Group counseling * International social work
* Community education & organizing * Practice with immigrants & refugees
* Restorative justice & corrections * Military social work
* Policy & planning * Gero-social work with older adults

* Crisis intervention * Healthcare and medical social work
* Social services administration * Community mental health
  • BSW graduates may apply to the school's nationally-ranked Master of Social Work (MSW) degree program as Advanced Standing, having completed 18 hours of foundation-level coursework. An Accelerated MSW Admissions process is available for junior social work students interested in pursuing an MSW in clinical social work* practice after completion of their BSW. *Clinical social workers are the largest group of professionally trained mental health providers in the U.S., supplying more than half of counseling and therapy services (NASW).
