Why Social Work at Valpo?
Now more than ever, the world needs Social Workers. Social work as a profession is projected to grow 12% faster than average between now and 2030 (Bureau of Labor Statistics). Valpo’s hands-on learning and individualized attention from faculty prepares you to be career or graduate school ready on day one. With our accredited program, you will have an automatic fast-track to a one-year master’s degree. Valpo offers not one, but two internship experiences, distinguishing it from most BSW programs in the country. Between 2015-2020, Valpo BSW students contributed roughly 50,000 hours of service to the community.
