Social Work - BSW

Welcome to Belmont Social Work! If you are seeking a career that is centered on service to others, there is no better starting point than the Social Work program at Belmont University. The Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) will lead you to a dynamic career with meaning, purpose, action, and an abundance of professional options. Belmont’s Department of Social Work is a close and supportive community that has been educating social workers for almost 50 years in becoming competent and effective practitioners who truly make a difference in the lives of those they serve.

In addition to the BSW, our Department offers a Minor in Social Justice that allows students an opportunity to learn more about the social problems our society faces and the important role social systems play in solving them.

Belmont’s Social Work program is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) which provides strategic benefits to our students. The most notable of these is the ability to complete a Master of Social Work (MSW) degree in one year by enrolling in an Advanced Standing Program after graduation. Even if you choose to begin work immediately after graduation, you can be confident your education has met the highest standards of national accreditation and that you are ready to meet the needs of your clients and our community. You can find further information about our accreditation and licensure standards on our About the Department page.
