Tarleton State University
The Bachelor of Social Work offers a specialized degree that prepares graduates for entry into direct human service professional positions. With a BSW, the graduate has opportunities for licensure by the State of Texas as a qualified Social Worker. To be licensed as a Social Worker in Texas, you must have a BSW or MSW. No other degree allows for licensure. Our program is hands-on, with community-based learning beginning in the student’s junior year. Students complete a four-semester sequence of courses that result in a finished portfolio that can be used to document their achievement of the competencies, as well as used for evidence in searching for a job.
The BSW program is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE), indicating that we meet rigorous standards and undergo periodic reaffirmation processes.
Blinn College District offers associate degree programs that provide seamless pathways to bachelor programs available onsite through Texas A&M System universities.
