Develop the skills and knowledge needed to begin social work practice with the online Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) program from Aurora University. You’ll be prepared to work with communities, groups, families and individuals in a variety of settings as well as with diverse populations and problems. Graduates with the BSW degree are eligible to take the Illinois State Social Work license exam (LSW) after completing two years of work experience and to apply for advanced standing in the Aurora University MSW program.
Instructors in this program use open education resources (OER) in place of traditional textbooks for some courses. This means digital, openly licensed content is available free of charge to students.
