Social workers serve in mental health clinics, nonprofits, hospitals, schools, community agencies, etc. to help people and enhance the quality of life for all – especially those most vulnerable and oppressed. They value a person-in-environment, systems theory approach and employ a uniquely holistic, strengths-based social work lens rooted in social justice activism.
Students are admitted to the Social Welfare major only once per year, to begin in September. Autumn 2019 departmental BASW admission applications will be available this February, with an April deadline; see this page for prerequisites and application info.
