Bachelor of Science in Social Work

The formation of individuals who desire to bring about the relevant social change and who will be able to intervene in social problems related to the functioning of multi-level human systems is carried on in two educational levels offered by the Social Work Section, i.e., the BSSW which is being described here and the MSSW, on the next page.

The Bachelor of Science in Social Work (BSSW) degree is a specialized course offered for three semesters to individuals who are envisioned to be working directly with the grassroots.  The focus of instruction is in strengthening the philosophical base and in developing among the students the commitment as well as the skills to work with the marginalized groups on a partnership level.
