Learn About Our Program

The University of Wyoming Division of Social Work offers a Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) degree program that is fully accredited by the Council on Social Work Education.  A BSW degree is a professional degree that allows an individual to apply for certification at the state level in Wyoming.  The Division of Social Work prepares generalist social work practitioners to work with individuals, groups, families, organizations, communities, and institutions to achieve more effective and efficient functioning.

Coursework includes the University Studies Program (USP) and the Division of Social Work's  course requirements.  Completion of 120 credit hours is the minimum required for the BSW degree.  The curriculum is designed to help students acquire important knowledge and skills in the areas of values and ethics, diversity, social and economic justice, populations at-risk, human behavior and the social environment, social welfare policy and services, social work practice, and research.  Students select elective courses in areas such as child welfare, aging, substance abuse, corrections, child and adolescent services, mental health, and disability services.  The program culminates in a 450-hour supervised field practicum during the student's senior year and allows students the opportunity to learn under the supervision of professional social workers and the opportunity to apply their knowledge and skills in one of Wyoming's many human service agencies.

Our BSW program is available on the Laramie and UW/CC campuses.  Coursework is offered face-to-face, via compressed video, and online (as part of a face-to-face or compressed video course) on the Casper campus.  Please visit the University of Wyoming/Casper College Center's webpage for more information.
