The Department of Social Work continues to experience growth in terms of students, faculty, and programs. The BSW program is a thriving “middle-sized” program in terms of the number of social work majors and minors. The BSW program has been continuously accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) since 1978. The MSW program enrolls nearly 115 graduate students and received initial accreditation from the CSWE in June, 2006. Our MSW program offers a unique concentration: advanced direct practice in rural settings. Significant departmental projects include the WKU Training Resource Center (TRC), the Public Child Welfare Certification Program (PCWCP), the Credit for Learning Project (CFL), and the MSW Cohort Studies Initiative.
