Undergraduate Social Work


Program Options

WSU offers several options for undergraduate students interested in pursuing a degree in social work.

Bachelor of Social Work


WSU's traditional bachelor of social work (BSW) degree, offered in Winona, is a four-year undergraduate professional degree.

The first two years consist of general education classes along with a series of foundation courses.

Then students apply for admission to the Social Work program, which is four semesters of core classes.

Hybrid Bachelor of Social Work


The Hybrid Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) degree, offered in Rochester, is an alternative option to the traditional face-to-face program.

Coursework is delivered in a hybrid format that combines both online and face-to-face learning.

The core curriculum is the same in both traditional and hybrid deliveries and across both campuses.
