School of Social Welfare Degree Programs
- Current BSW Students Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) The School of Social Welfare provides the education and experience necessary for a career in social work. The educational goals of the baccalaureate program are to educate students for generalist practice at the entry level and prepare students for advanced graduate work in social work, as well as for degree programs in other disciplines. Students will be able to practice competently, under professional supervision, with a variety of client systems, and at all system levels.
- Current MSW Students Master of Social Work (MSW) The Master of Social Work degree prepares graduates for advanced social work practice in one of two broad concentrations — either clinical social work practice with individuals, families and groups, or social work macro practice aimed at social service administration, social policy development and social advocacy. The concentrations build on the first level of the master's curriculum, which provides a generalist foundation required of all students.
- Current PhD Students Current PhD Students The goal of the University of Kansas School of Social Welfare doctoral program is to prepare students to become leaders nationally and internationally in advancing social work practice and policy through research, teaching and scholarship.
