Social Work Department
Welcome to the La Sierra University Department of Social Work website. We offer a rewarding educational experience that fosters personal and professional growth. Please know that we are committed to your development and will work to ensure your success. At times, your course of study may be challenging and perhaps even overwhelming, but I would like to assure you that the social work faculty takes a personal interest in your academic progress and is available to assist you in your journey toward a fulfilling social work career.
Our program has been continuously accredited by the Council on Social Work Education since 1979. As a generalist social work program, our aim is to produce competent social workers who fulfill the profession's mission of helping others and improving society as a whole. Successful graduates receive a Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) degree, which is recognized by the National Association of Social Workers as the entry level professional degree for social work practice.
