Social Work, First Look

“As a student in this program, I was overwhelmed by a sense of belonging and hope. This feeling is something I strive to bring into my client’s lives as I walk alongside them through their darkest nights and join them in their greatest victories.”

“A Social Work degree has the potential to open doors for healing and restoration not only for individuals, but for generations, families, communities, and beyond. We are called upon to intervene for and empower people from birth to death. The BSW degree equips students to fully engage their individual callings within diverse roles and settings.”
