BSW Program

Department of Social Work, Gallaudet University

Gallaudet University's social work major prepares students for admission to graduate school in social work and related human service fields.

The undergraduate program in social work has been accredited by the Council on Social Work Education since 1976.

The social work sequence consists of 47 credits in the major, which includes coursework and field practicum (internships). Prior to the major, students take supporting courses in sociology, psychology, economics, biology, and American government or American history. The field practicum requirement consists of a two-semester internship in the senior year in a selected agency under professional social work supervision.

Why should I major in Social Work?

Social work is for you if you have a natural desire to work with people, are concerned about social problems and have the ability to be objective about others' problems. Social work helps people deal with their relationships with others; solve their personal, family, and community problems; and grow and develop by learning to cope with or shape the social and environmental forces affecting daily life.
