SOCIAL WORK 

Bachelor Degree

Roberts Wesleyan College

Social work is a broadly defined profession encompassing many different kinds of professionals who all serve people in need. Social workers are unique in the way that they look at many different aspects of a problem, from the individual to the societal, from the psychological to the political. Social workers are trained to work with people in their environment, looking at various dimensions of their lives. Common ways of serving clients include providing counseling, therapy and education, as well as connecting clients to appropriate public or private resources. This program is designed for the mature student who is articulate, intelligent, and interested in helping others.

Program Structure

Students who are accepted to the BSW program begin by earning 60 credits through Excelsior College, satisfying specific prerequisites for Roberts Wesleyan College. Credits are earned by taking exams at one of TTI’s testing centers. Students can also transfer previously earned credits to meet some of the pre-requisite requirements. Once students begin class time, the first week of each course is taught by the professor in person. Subsequent classes will be conducted by the professor via remote technology, yet students must be in physical attendance in the classroom. Classes given in this program are TTI exclusive, with separate groups for men and women. Internet access will be needed to complete coursework during the week.
