Prospective Students

Why Social Work? Social work is a profession for those who want to make a difference in the lives of individuals, families, groups, organizations, and communities on local, state, national, and international levels.  Social workers are committed to advocating for and serving vulnerable populations, and promoting social and economic justice. The social work profession engages in advocacy for the development of conditions for optimal well being and prevention and treatment of social problems.

Career opportunities are available to social workers in a wide variety of state, federal, and other public agencies; private non-profit organizations; and private for-profit organizations, including hospitals, mental health centers, schools, adolescent treatment facilities, child care centers, nursing homes, substance abuse treatment centers, public assistance agencies, probation and parole offices, correctional centers, community action agencies, and research facilities. More information can be found on the NASW Help Starts Here webpage.

 

ABOUT THE DIVISION OF SOCIAL WORK

Strengths of Our Division

The Division of Social Work has a dynamic student-centered faculty and employs additional community professionals who teach on an adjunct basis. Our small class sizes give students a strong connection to faculty and individualized attention.

How Classes Are Taught Here

Every year at the University of Wyoming, on average, 120 undergraduate students major in Social Work. Students in the BSW Program may take courses in Laramie or in Casper at UW-Casper. The Division of Social Work has 30 first and second year MSW students on average. MSW students can enroll to take classes on the Laramie Campus or throughout Wyoming through the University of Wyoming's Distance Education. BSW students have the option to attend class as full-time students. Please note that while some lectures may be conducted via video feeds at specific locations in the state, we do NOT have an online program.
