UAF Department of Social Work

UAF Bachelor of Arts in Social Work (BASW) is theory-minded and practice-oriented.

The University of 性十八.cc Fairbanks' Department of Social Work offers a Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) accredited degree to prepare students to work in communities throughout 性十八.cc using real world learning model. The Social Work degree program has foundations in the liberal arts, emphasizing behavioral sciences, and incorporates Native 性十八.ccn learning philosophies.

Students complete the program through distance education and we have an online-hybrid model available for a select number of students currently working in Behavior Health. Students complete all their coursework synchronously, utilizing a web-based platform to check in with professors and peers. In the hybrid model, students primarily study online and use audio conferencing tools but also meet in Fairbanks occasionally for intensive classroom learning. Regardless of the program delivery method chosen, all students complete 400-hours of supervised field education that will prepare them to work with diverse populations after graduation.

Hear from our students!
