Social Work at Messiah College 

Get hands-on experience working with local agencies, helping those in social, emotional or economic need.

If you are passionate about social justice issues and enhancing the well-being of others - especially those who are vulnerable, oppressed or living in poverty - then consider pursuing a Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) degree at Messiah College. 

At Messiah, you’ll get to work with local agencies and organizations helping people in social, emotional or economic need. And as a graduate of Messiah’s social work program, you’ll be prepared for a variety of entry-level positions in the Social Work profession. Or maybe you’d like to further your studies at graduate school - a path many of our graduates pursue – and you’ll be well prepared for that next step. Accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE), Messiah’s professional BSW program qualifies you for advanced standing status in a Masters of Social Work (MSW) program at an accredited graduate school.
