Welcome from the Director

Welcome  to the Bachelor of Social Work at the UTA School of Social Work (UTASSW). We know you have many choices in your education and are pleased that you have chosen us. The BSW program is acclaimed as one of the most affordable bachelor programs in social work and the demand for social workers is growing faster than average. Our BSW program includes courses parallel to those taught in our nationally ranked Master’s of Social Work Program. These courses are taught by nationally and internationally recognized faculty who are leading scholars in many areas of social work and social welfare. Students in these programs have an opportunity to take a variety of courses from instructors committed to social justice, social work education, and the advancement of the social work profession.

I join the whole faculty in welcoming you to our BSW program at UTA; I look forward to working with you to help make your experience enjoyable, productive, and rewarding.
