About the Department
Welcome to the Department of Social Work at Winthrop University. As a student-centered learning community, the Department follows the established core social work values of service, social justice, the dignity and worth of the person, the importance of human relationships, integrity, and competence. What do Social Workers do with their degree?
We offer the following degree options to educate students to become generalist practice and advanced practice social workers:
- The Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) degree - Preparing students to move directly into social work positions in a wide range of settings with a focus in generalist practice.
- The Minor in Social Welfare - Designed for students interested in the general social welfare field who do not plan to enter into professional social work practice.
- The Master of Social Work (MSW) degree - Offering an advanced concentration in empowerment practice with three different approaches for completing the degree:
- The Advanced Standing MSW Program - This program is designed for students who have previously earned a CSWE accredited bachelor’s degree in social work. Enrollment is on a full-time basis for one calendar year beginning each May.
- The Full-Time MSW Program - This program is for students who are able to pursue full-time enrollment in graduate study over a period of two academic years beginning each August.
- The Weekend MSW Program - This program is designed for students who are employed in the human services field. Graduate study consists of intensive weekend course offerings and reduced weekly required field hours over a three year period of study beginning each August.
Field placements are an important component in our programs. The Office of Field Instruction coordinates and supports graduate and undergraduate internships in a wide variety of local and regional agencies.
