Mission

The mission of the University of North Florida (UNF) Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) program is to prepare students with the generalist knowledge, values, and skills to provide effective social work services to diverse client systems in a variety of practice settings. Our curriculum is designed to enhance students' understanding of and sensitivity to economic and social inequalities and foster commitment to serving and advocating for the well-being of those who are vulnerable, marginalized, and oppressed.

Goals

In accordance with our mission, the BSW program aims to:

  • offer a curriculum grounded in the liberal arts and informed by state of the art social work knowledge that prepares students for effective generalist social work practice with diverse clients systems in a variety of practice settings;
  • enhance students' understanding of and sensitivity to economic and social inequalities, fostering commitment to serve and advocate for those who are vulnerable, marginalized, and oppressed;
  • prepare students to engage self-critically in practice evaluation as well as lifelong personal and professional growth through the development of research, critical thinking and problem-solving skills; and
  • socialize students to the values and ethics of the social work profession.
