For others not immediately entering the field after graduation, the Social Work program of Tuskegee University prepares students to continue their social work education at the graduate level. As an Historically Black College University (HBCU), the Department is committed to preparing African-American students, and marginalized and disadvantaged students for strength based generalist practice with other vulnerable populations. The Department develops its bachelor of social work (BSW) students’ core social work competencies, leadership skills, and knowledge of the global social work context. It also instills in early career generalist practitioners the importance of evidence-based practice and the rigorous evaluation of social work practice and programs.
