Social Work

Cultivating Future Leaders of Social Change

Do you desire social and economic justice regarding human rights conditions? Are you driven to bring change to the world through your profession? Our Council on Social Work Education (CSWE)— accredited program equips you for effective, ethical and strength-based work with individuals, families, groups, communities and organizations.

You'll receive the preparation you need to enter a career as a generalist social worker from actively practicing professionals, including:

  • Developing professional knowledge, values and skills of generalist practice from a rural to global perspective
  • Gaining hands-on practical experience starting in your second semester at college
  • Performing a minimum of 420 hours of senior fieldwork in a year-long internship

Many Champlain BSW alumni continue their education. Through our CSWE accreditation, you can apply for an advanced standing MSW program- a year-long master's program instead of two. If accepted, you would save a year of tuition costs and get a head start on a career with a higher-level skillset.
