You are encouraged to explore the BSW program in-depth prior to choosing any program.

The BSW program often begins with a delve into general education courses including Sociology, Mathematics, and Humanities courses. This entry-level information can provide you with a great foundation of generalized knowledge for use in social work fields in the future.

Later in your program, you can take advantage of learning in more advanced courses like Trauma Practice in Social Work, Social Policy, and Social Work Research Methods. Each of these courses can allow you to explore concepts related to actual hands-on practice, the historical development of the field, and skills related to professional research for making advanced changes to the field.

Your program can also include courses that focus on direct practice at the micro, mezzo, and macro levels. This can help you prepare for careers that focus on change programs for small populations of clients, community services, or even social work at the government level.

You can also expect most programs to include some in-person field requirements towards the end of the program. These practicum or internship requirements can be excellent opportunities to visualize actual social work practice by current social work professionals in the field.
