Bachelor of Social Work program

The BSW Program at EMU attracts a growing and diverse student body, providing students with strong preparation for generalist social work practice.

Once accepted to the Social Work program, each student completes a personalized plan of course work that includes an 8-month (400 hour) agency-based internship. BSW students spend two days a week during their final year of study completing this internship. The EMU School of Social Work has cultivated a rich network of relationships across the regions with a wide range of social work agencies across the region who offer placements to our students.

Most required BSW courses are offered both during the day and during the evening.
