Community engagement is foundational to the student learning experience within the Department of Social Work.
Students studying Social Work at USU will learn to become advocates committed to the resolution of contemporary social problems. The program, which is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education, prepares students to intervene with individuals, families, groups and communities while developing administrative skills to promote social change.
Graduates of this program will leave ready to be licensed as social workers after passing the National Basic Social Work exam and the State of Utah Law and Ethics exam. After certification, graduates can seek employment in public and child welfare, healthcare, community organization or gerontology.
USU’s Social Work programs are accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) and consequently meet licensure requirements in all 50 states. States differ in their licensing processes and students are encouraged to become familiar with these processes when pursuing licensure in a particular state.
