Bachelor of Social Work Internships to Advance Student Careers, Local Communities

The University of Saint Mary has extended its commitment to addressing some of society’s most pressing needs by launching a Bachelor of Social Work program.

The new degree, which launches in August, will develop professionals focused on providing services that advance the well being of others, promoting social and economic justice, and enhancing the lives of the communities and populations they serve.

“Social work is a rewarding career path that we are excited to bring to students at the University of Saint Mary,” Director of Social Work Joe Squillace said. “USM’s four core values – community, respect, justice, and excellence – are reinforced throughout our social work courses while emphasizing themes of social justice, citizenship, professionalism, integrity, and scholarship.”

The program has a unique practice-based curriculum, and students will conduct an internship in their senior year in the many social service agencies and institutions around Leavenworth. By graduation, students will complete 540 hours of internship work.
