Social Work

The BSW (Bachelor of Social Work) Program at the University of Saint Francis is accredited through the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE). Our program is accredited through June 2019. For additional information about accrediting body, please see

 A graduate with a BSW degree from a CSWE-accredited program has several advantages. A graduate from our program:

1) May apply state licensure as a professional social worker. Please see the Social Work License Map at for additional information. Also check the government web site of your state government.

2) May apply for advanced standing in a CSWE-accredited MSW (Master in Social Work) Program. If accepted, the MSW Program may require fewer credit hours for graduation. For programs with advanced standing, please see

3) May find several employment options in a wide variety of settings such as community mental health centers, domestic violence shelters, hospitals, hospices, social service agencies serving children, youth, families, and older adults, schools, child welfare, probation, veterans, nursing homes, adult or child protective services, rehabilitation centers, group homes for adults with developmental disabilities, or work training programs.

4) May qualify for loan forgiveness through the Higher Education Act and College Costs Reduction Act of 2007.


Each accredited social work program is required to create and implement a program assessment plan. Our BSW Program completes this plan on an annual basis. A summary of our evaluation results are available below.
