About

The BSW in Social Work at Eastern University educates students to be knowledgeable and skilled general social work practitioners, compassionate agents of God’s mercy and justice in meeting common human needs, with particular attention to people who are vulnerable, oppressed, and living in poverty.

Overview

The field of social work helps people in a variety of ways. Whether it’s child abuse, aging, homelessness, family violence, catastrophic illness, school failure, developmental disabilities, or substance abuse, there are many opportunities to make a difference. After the general Social Work courses, students must go through a rigorous admissions process into the Social Work major. 

Once admitted, students begin internships throughout the Philadelphia area in whatever field interests them most. The BSW at Eastern University also offers advanced standing for the Master of Social Work (MSW) if a student maintains a B average. This will allow for completion of the MSW in one year. This serves as an advantage for students, as many social workers pursue an MSW throughout their career.
