  • BASW
The Bachelor of Arts in Social Work (BASW) is a flexible degree that allows you to enter the profession as a license-eligible Social Worker. The social work profession has a rich tradition of emphasizing the value and worth of individuals and their experiences and of understanding the complexities of inequity and inequality in the world around us. Social work classes offer a unique lens through which to view individuals, families, communities, and society at large. Our curriculum is focused on social justice, strengths, and solutions. We are committed to social change – and that means that we’re passionate about educating the next generation of social workers who will lead that change process. We have a strong practicum (internship) component to our undergraduate program, allowing students to learn alongside professional social workers in the field.
