Please encourage students, Social Work major application due Feb. 28
The major in Social Work, leading to the Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) degree at UW-Green Bay, prepares a graduate for a career as a social worker working with a broad range of individuals, families, organizations and communities. Graduates of the UW-Green Bay Social Work Professional Program secure positions in programs serving populations that include older adults, children and their families, persons challenged by developmental and other disabilities, juvenile and adult offenders, persons experiencing mental or physical health issues and other groups identified in this ever-evolving field. Social workers provide direct service and work for social justice through advocacy and, for example, social policy development and change. The UW-Green Bay Social Work Professional Program has full accreditation from the Council on Social Work Education. The BSW degree from UW-Green Bay allows the graduate to obtain state certification and provides a broad range of employment opportunities.
