Social Work, BA & BS
Social work is a human service profession focused on enhancing the social functioning of individuals, families, groups, organizations, and communities, with a particular emphasis on disadvantaged populations. Our social work curriculum includes five content areas: human behavior and the social environment, practice, policy, research, and field instruction. Our program is designed to:
- Prepare social workers for beginning-level generalist practice including formal and informal lifelong learning.
- Integrate Christian values with professional values to challenge worldviews, personal beliefs, and societal constructs.
- Globalize student perspectives on issues and experiences of diverse, vulnerable and marginalized populations.
- Enable graduates to impact circles of influence in an effort to advance social justice.
Taylor’s social work program is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE). Social work majors can earn a Bachelor of Arts (includes language requirement) or Bachelor of Science degree. Graduates are prepared to apply for state credentialing (licensure, certification or registration) as a beginning-level social work practitioner in all 50 states.
