BA in Social Work
The Social Work Department at the University of Northern Iowa is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education. The undergraduate social work major prepares students for beginning level professional social work practice.
The program defines the generalist perspective on practice as: Multidimensional theory, knowledge, and skills used to understand and intervene into diverse human systems in keeping with social work values and ethics.
The program contributes to the liberal arts, general education of university students who are not social work majors. Finally, it affords social work students the opportunity to explore advanced methodologies and fields of practice within social work through occasional advanced elective offerings.
