Undergraduate Programs

The Social Work Department offers two Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) options for undergraduate students who are interested in careers in a highly rewarding field.

You'll learn how to work with individuals, families, groups, and communities to improve their social functioning.

Our BSW degree is fully accredited by the Council on Social Work Education, meaning you’ll be ready to sit for the licensing exam when you graduate.

Learn the same core curriculum either in person or in a hybrid format—the choice is yours.

In Person, Winona Campus

If you want coursework delivered entirely in person, then this BSW program option is for you.

This means that on-campus attendance in Winona is required.

Hybrid, Rochester Campus

This BSW program option delivers coursework in a hybrid format, which combines online and in-person learning.

You'll also be required to attend at least four face-to-face sessions at Rochester Community & Technical College (RCTC).
