Academic Programs in Social Work

The Department of Social Work offers one undergraduate degree (on campus only).  The department does not offer a minor.  Our programs are practice-oriented, with a focus on hands-on, experiential learning. In our courses, you'll learn to apply a systems-perspective (examining people through their environments) to real world problems as you help the most vulnerable populations.

We offer a practice-oriented, traditional undergraduate degree, at our Hays campus and through our cohort programs in Garden City and Dodge City.  You'll study with expert faculty who incorporate their experiences and active research agendas into the classroom, letting you experience how social work knowledge applies to real world challenges.


We also offer the opportunity for students to earn a graduate degree through a partnership with the University of Kansas.  This is a blended program, on-campus and online.
