The Social Work major will provide you with the professional knowledge, values, and skills needed to help people experiencing overwhelming life challenges such as substance abuse, domestic violence, child abuse, homelessness, and death, as well as mental, behavioral, and physical illness or disability. Social workers approach their work with people from the strengths perspective, while also looking at the individual within their environment. Social workers also advocate for social change and become involved in the political process. Our accredited BSW degree enables you to become a licensed generalist social worker in many states.
