Chatham University Social Work

The social work program, administratively part of the Human Development Division, offers a major leading to a Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) degree. A liberal arts foundation is an integral part of an undergraduate social work education and provides an essential context for understanding human behavior. A BSW prepares students for generalist social work practice as well as graduate education in social work and related fields. Bachelor-level social workers are employed in all areas of human services and health care. They are also eligible for advanced standing in graduate programs in social work. A minor in social service administration is also available.


Chatham's Bachelor of Social Work Program is fully accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE).
