The Social Work Program at Fort Hays State University offers a Baccalaureate of Social Work (BSW) degree. The program was approved and adopted by the Board of Regents in February 1995. The program is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education and graduates are eligible for licensure in the State of Kansas.
The BSW program may NOT be completed online, as the program has in-residence requirements. Specifically, each student must receive face-to-face instruction during his/her junior year and the fall semester of his/her senior year. Please review the BSW Program of Study:
