To prepare generalist social workers who integrate knowledge, values, and skills to promote economic and social justice, and improve the well-being of individuals, families, and communities with integrity.
Students enrolled in the BSW program will encounter a broad range of knowledge and experiences as they develop a generalist social work practice. Students are expected to maintain high academic standards and to develop the capacity to work with people from a wide variety of backgrounds, with an emphasis on authenticity, acceptance, and sensitivity toward all people and all problems people may face.
The BSW program prepares students intending to pursue entry-level professional social work practice or further graduate study. BSW graduates will be prepared for employment in such varied fields as child welfare, corrections, physical and mental health care, long-term care, rehabilitation, and public assistance. The Texas State BSW program is fully accredited by the Council on Social Work Education, and graduates are eligible for state licensure.
