Three Grads

What do social workers do with thier degree? 

The Bachelor of Social Work degree (B.S.W.) at Winthrop University offers a strong professional practice curriculum that builds on a sound liberal arts base. It prepares students to move directly into social work positions in a wide range of settings, engaging in generalist social work practice at the individual, family, group, community and organizational levels, or to pursue graduate social work education. The program is nationally accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE), allowing graduates to become full members of the National Association of Social Workers (NASW).

A large number of Winthrop graduates go on to social work graduate programs, either immediately upon completing their undergraduate degree or after a few years of working in the social work field. Graduates of our program have a high acceptance rate, and the social work department receives consistent feedback that Winthrop graduates are extremely well prepared for graduate education. Students enroll in a variety of graduate programs.
