Bachelor of Science in Social Work

Social Work is rooted in a fundamental commitment to helping people and communities identify, prevent, and solve problems. The primary objective of the social work program is to prepare students for entry-level generalist social work practice. The off-campus social work program was implemented to meet the need for entry-level professionals in the upstate region of the state.

Students who have at least two years of coursework from a higher education institution may apply for admission to the off campus program. Students who do not have two years of college study may enroll in the Transfer Program at Greenville Technical College, and upon completion of the general education requirements may apply for transfer into the social work program.

Some students elect to enroll in two-year Human Service degree programs that are available at many community colleges and then seek transfer to a social work degree program. Normally, such students have not completed the required general education courses.

Students must complete the general education courses prior to applying for admission to the social work program.

Upon approval, students may enroll in the elective courses through Greenville Technical College. All social work courses at the University Center are taught by South Carolina State University faculty.
