Winona State University-Rochester offers a Bachelor of Social Work and a Master of Social Work through hybrid, mostly online programs. Our BSW program is fully accredited by the Council on Social Work Education. In most states employment as a professional social worker following graduation with a BSW will require the graduate to take the State Board Licensing Examination.
Through the "Path to Purple" Program, students can complete the Bachelor of Social Work degree in its entirety in Rochester by completing lower-division credits at Rochester Community and Technical College, and the major's upper-division credits through Winona State University. Most classes are held online with additional Learning Labs held in-person in Rochester.Learn more about the Undergraduate Social Work program and Graduate Social Work program at WSU Rochester.
