The Social Work Program at Texas A&M University-Kingsville offers the Bachelor of Social Work (B.S.W.) degree preparing students to engage in entry level, generalist social work practice with individuals, couples, families, groups, organizations, and communities with particular emphasis on the ecological perspective. The B.S.W. degree program has been continuously accredited by the Council on Social Work Education since 2004, and our graduates are eligible to sit for the social work baccalaureate level examination. Additionally, the Social Work Program participates in the Title IV-E program. Our graduates provide social work services in a variety of fields of practice including youth and family services, mental health care, health care, criminal and juvenile justice, and services to older adults. The social work values of service, social and economic justice, dignity and worth of the person, importance of human relationships, integrity, and competence in practice serve as our defining principles guiding our application of social work knowledge and skills to client populations. The primary mission of our social work program is to prepare graduates to provide competent, entry-level, generalist social work practice to diverse client populations.
