The Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) degree prepares students for generalist social work practice to help improve the well-being of individuals, families, and communities with integrity. Students will also be able to integrate social work knowledge, values, and skills toward economic and social justice. The Texas State University Bachelor of Social Work program is fully accredited by the Council on Social Work Education and graduates will be able to engage in entry-level social work practice, apply for state social work licensure, and pursue graduate social work (MSW) studies. BSW level social workers help people of all ages and practice in such varied fields as child welfare, schools, long-term care, general social services, mental health care, and public assistance. Within the program, Social Work students must maintain high academic standards, develop the capacity to work with people from diverse backgrounds, and assist all people with any life difficulties and transitions they experience.
