Social Work

Do you want to make a difference? Do you want to contribute to community, family and individual wellbeing? Social work might just be the program for you. Social work is a field based on knowledge, practice, research and professional values. It has a code of ethics. It is a profession that unites based on its commitment to help others — to assist people through difficult times and to work at improving policy and social conditions. Above all else, social work is practical. But it is also emotional. You have the capacity to change lives. Learn more about earning a Bachelor of Science in Social Work (BSW) degree today.
