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).
