The School of Social Work at California State University, Long Beach (CSULB) welcomes your interest in our School and the programs we offer. The School of Social Work offers a two year professional program leading to a Bachelor of Arts in Social Work (BASW) degree.
Our Bachelor of Arts in Social Work (BASW) program is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE). The goals of the BASW program are to prepare students for entry level, professional, generalist social work practice and for graduate social work education including advanced standing. Students learn to practice as professional social workers with persons and groups representing the range of human diversity and with all size systems (individuals, families, groups, communities and institutions).
Program Schedule: The BASW program offers the opportunity for students to study in a daytime or evening program model:
Field Education Requirements: Fieldwork is an integral part of the BASW curriculum, providing an opportunity for students to apply social work knowledge and practice skills in an agency based, educationally focused field setting.
