Department of Social Work

The Department of Social Work offers two programs, an undergraduate social work major, leading to a BA in social work, and a master's in social work program. The BA Program prepares students for beginning generalist social work practice and the MSW Program prepares students for advanced social work practice with deaf and hard of hearing populations. The BA Program has been continuously accredited since its initial accreditation in 1976. The MSW Program received initial accreditation by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) in 1994, and was reaccredited for the full eight year cycle in 1999. For the first time, BA and MSW programs were jointly accredited in 2008 and again in 2016. The curricula for both the BA and MSW programs follow a CSWE competency-based approach to curriculum design.
