B.S.W., Bachelor of Social Work

Program Information

The School of Social Work offers a program that leads to a Bachelor of Social Work degree.  The social work program requires a second application and the completion of Areas A – F.

Enrollment in the BSW program is limited and therefore early application is advisable. The application deadline is June 1 preceding the fall semester in which admission is desired. After June 1, applications are considered on a space available basis. Students must be accepted to the university as an undergraduate degree-seeking student before they can be admitted to the BSW program.

Suggested Schedule of Courses

This is a suggested 4-year schedule of courses based on degree requirements in the current catalog.  This guide is not a substitute for academic advisement — contact your advisement office if you have any questions about scheduling or about your degree requirements.  Also see the Undergraduate Catalog for a complete list of requirements and electives to choose from. 

Students may choose to attend a summer term to reduce their load during fall or spring semesters but still stay on track to graduate in four years.
