As you look over these web pages, you will learn important information about the Bachelors of Social Work Program and the importance placed on student learning through involvement in and outside of the classroom .
The ULM Bachelors of Social Work Program has a proud tradition of social work education for over thirty years. The Social Work Department at ULM has been accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) since 1977. Accreditation was reaffirmed in October 2008 for the full eight-year-cycle ending October 2015. At that time, the Social Work Department will again be under review for re-accreditation.
The mission of the University of Louisiana at Monroe Bachelors of Social Work Program is to provide students with a specific body of knowledge, values, and professional skills to prepare competent, generalist social work professionals who are committed to identifying and affirming the historical principles, values and ethics of the social work profession. The program seeks to educate and train students for professional practice and for leadership roles in the social services and the social work profession. The program also seeks to prepare social work students to work with society's diverse populations, develop skills that promote social and economic justice, and build and promote effective community services. This academically challenging social work program is based on a liberal arts perspective which blends well with the beliefs, values, and ethics of the social work profession.
The format of the Bachelors of Social Work Program changes as is dictated by the standards of the Council on Social Work Education's goals for undergraduate social work education and is defined by the ever-changing social environment.
Our program is structured so that continual re-evaluation and revision keep our curriculum both current with the field of social work and keep it academically sound. The ULM Bachelors of Social Work Program continues to grow and remains a viable program committed to providing an academically challenging social work education. The future looks bright as we continue to build excellence on a strong foundation from the past.
