Course info


The BSSW program is designed to educate students for generalist social work practice that focuses on the reciprocal relationships between persons and their environments. Our BSSW graduates take a wide variety of jobs ranging from case management to community organizing, and work with a variety of populations ranging from young children and families, adolescents, or work with the elderly.

The BSSW curriculum, which includes field practice (internship) experiences, is geared toward preparing students to become highly competent social workers who advance human rights, engage in practice-informed research and policy practice, engage diversity in practice, and effectively encounter and strategically work with individuals, families, groups, organizations and communities. Firmly rooted in our professional code of ethics, students work with faculty and field instructors who are connected with and committed to advancing social, economic, and environmental justice for all.

The Online BSSW Program is specifically designed for transfer students who have earned 60 credit hours and an Associate of Art (A.A.) or Associate of Science (A.S.) degree from a regionally accredited community college. Transfer students who complete the Tennessee Transfer Pathway in Social Work are highly encouraged to apply.

All curriculum and program requirements for the Online BSSW Program are identical to those required for the on-campus BSSW Program. All required social work courses will be delivered exclusively online using real-time or synchronous video conference software. Courses will also feature asynchronous teaching methods to facilitate learning through the use of online learning resources outside predetermined time constraints. The online BSSW Program offers cutting-edge electives including courses on trauma, forensic social work, crisis intervention and suicidology, and social work with military and veteran populations.. Like the on-campus BSSW Program, students will work with their field coordinator to secure their required field/practicum placements that occur in a real-world practice setting under the supervision of a professional social worker
