UMD launched its BSW Program in Fall 2014. Applications are now being accepted for admission to to the BSW Program. Deadline for priority admission is February 15th each year, with a second round of applications accepted May 15th. All admitted students join a cohort and begin coursework the following fall semester.

The BSW program is primarily online. Students will have the opportunity to complete their required 420 hour field placement/internship in their home community if an appropriate human services agency and supervisor can be identified.



The Bachelor of Social Work (B.S.W.) program prepares students for generalist practice in a variety of human service settings. Graduates are prepared to do a variety of professional social work jobs including counselor, substance abuse/mental health, child welfare and school social work. The curriculum has a special focus on services to American Indians and their communities. The skills students learn are transferable when working with a variety of different groups and settings. There is also a Bachelor's Child Welfare Scholars Program students can apply to after they are accepted into the BSW program. For more information on the program, visit the BSW child welfare scholars webpage.
