The Bachelor of Social Work program is the study of the professional activity of helping individuals, families, groups, organizations, or communities at the local and global level. The goal is to give students the skills to assist these systems to improve or recover their ability to function successfully in society. It also involves the creation of conditions within society conducive to realizing that goal. The degree prepares students for entry level generalist social work practice at the micro and macro levels. It also challenges students to appropriately integrate their studies and the Christian faith. This program is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE).

The Bachelor of Social Work degree consists of a course of study including a 50-semester hour core of social work and sociology courses, which requires a field placement of 400 hours. The degree is supported by 37 hours of general education classes and 18 hours of electives. Six of the twelve elective hours must be taken in social work, sociology, or psychology. Courses are taken in sequence with each course developed to build on previous courses in the sequence. All students in the BSW program will gain real-world experience through SWK 470  and SWK 471 .

In compliance with standards of accreditation, social work students must apply for admission to the Social Work program. Application should be submitted soon after completing SWK 200 . Applications are located in the Social Work department.
