- Social Work is a licensed profession. Social work employment is expected to grow by almost 20% this decade!
- BSW students gain real-world experience during 600 hours of field education/internships (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.
- Graduates with a BSW can enter most master's degree in social work (MSW) programs as an "Advanced Standing" student and complete it in as little as one year. For junior social work majors interested in pursuing an MSW in clinical social work practice after completing their BSW, the School of Social Work has introduced an Accelerated MSW Admissions process.
- Graduates from ANY major will receive a St. Thomas alumni grant to the MSW program, representing a tuition discount of 10%
