The B.S.W. Program administers the undergraduate offerings of the School of Social Work, including the Bachelor of Social Work and the minor in social welfare.

Guided by the principle of promoting social justice, the goals of the B.S.W. Program are:

  1. To provide an integrated curriculum based on the knowledge, skills, ethics and values essential for beginning generalist social work practice.
  2. To offer an educational experience that facilitates the critical analysis of social work knowledge and practice.
  3. To provide classroom and field instruction experiences designed to promote culturally sensitive practice with diverse and oppressed groups.
  4. To provide an environment that encourages lifelong learning and prepares students for professional growth and development.

The VCU Bulletin is in transition! As we move from this first iteration of our online Bulletin to a new product and process, what you find on this website is information for the 2014-15 academic year.

While much of the curricular information remains the same, changes that were approved with the effective date of fall 2015 will not be reflected on this website. Prospective students may wish to contact the school or department that administers their program of interest in order to discuss the most current curriculum and concentration options.

Enrolled students who are completing their studies under an effective Bulletin may continue to access the archives at, where past Bulletins are available to reference or download.

Our anticipated launch of the new VCU Bulletin is July 2015. To follow our progress, visit the new Bulletin blog.
