The Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) prepares students for entry-level generalist practice in a variety of human service agencies and organizations. Students acquire the knowledge, skills and professional values required for practice with individuals, families, small groups, organizations and communities. Graduates are prepared to work with people experiencing many personal and social problems and to work for social justice. All students will complete a supervised internship in an approved field placement site as part of their academic requirements.

The University of Utah College of Social Work offers both campus and fully-online learning options for BSW students.

The College of Social Work also offers a three-semester Advanced Standing MSW Program. To be eligible for the program, applicants must have completed a Bachelor of Social Work degree.
