About The BASW Program

The Social Work major at UK is an exciting undergraduate degree program that sets students up for many different post-graduation plans. Many of our Social Work majors go on to graduate school in Social Work or a related field (such as Law or Public Policy). Students who enter the workforce after graduation are prepared for a wide range of careers within the profession. Our recent graduates are working in hospitals, community based non-profits, K-12 schools, universities, residential treatment programs, the criminal justice system, and more.

Our program is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) and offers you the highest quality undergraduate social work education in Kentucky. Our faculty and staff work hard to ensure that you have opportunities to engage in a wide range of classroom and co-curricular experiences while you are on campus. Information about pre-requisites for the major and the application process can be found here.
