U N E MSW students collage

The Bachelor of Social Work (B.S.W.) program at the University of New England prepares you with skills for generalist, broad, entry-level social work practice in a wide and varied range of social service, health, mental health and community-based settings. As a social worker, you will have opportunities to touch the lives of people across their lifespans—from newborns to elders and their families. You'll graduate with the knowledge and skills to enhance the wellbeing of all people and to secure resources to assure that basic human needs are met.
