Social work is a dynamic and challenging profession, rich in a tradition of helping. At Marywood, you can earn both a Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) degree and Master of Social Work (MSW) degree in just five years. This dual degree program will prepare you for a career in a variety of social work settings.
In the BSW program, students acquire the knowledge, values, ethics, and skills necessary for beginning professional social work practice. The curriculum consists of liberal arts, social-behavioral science, and professional social work courses. As part of the curriculum, students complete a series of three field experiences, one of which is a 450-hour field placement in a community social agency during the fall semester of the senior year. Field experiences take place in the freshman, junior, and senior years.
