Faculty Spotlight


Bachelor's in Social Work

Bachelor's in Social Work

The Baccalaureate degree in Social Work has been offered at the University of Arkansas since 1940. The School has one of the oldest undergraduate social work programs in the United States. The program is fully accredited by the Council on Social Work Education.

The undergraduate program has two primary education goals:

  • preparation for culturally competent, empirically based, multi-system, beginning level professional generalist practice across the life course

  • the preparation of students for continuing their professional growth and development after graduation.

In order to achieve its basic purposes, the faculty, students, staff, and agency field instructors are involved in a variety of teaching, research, and outreach activities that involve them in the life of the university, communities around the state, and at the national level.
