CSE Receives Preliminary Approval for New BSW Program

Morristown, N.J. (February 5, 2016) – The College of Saint Elizabeth has received approval from the Presidents' Council of New Jersey for a new Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) program within its sociology department.

"The BSW program aligns so well with our mission of social justice," says Dr. Anthony Santamaria, dean of the School of Arts and Sciences. "The learning outcomes prominently feature social justice, the alleviation of poverty and oppression, and the development of leadership in human and social services."

The BSW program proposal will now be submitted for national accreditation by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE), which requires a three-year process of meeting the council's qualifications. If the first year of candidacy qualifications are satisfactory to the CSWE, the College will begin to accept students into the program in the fall of 2017. Final accreditation is expected in 2019.

The proposed BSW program would prepare students for generalist professional practice and would qualify graduates for New Jersey State certification. For graduates pursuing a Master of Social Work, the BSW can give advance standing and offer course waivers, allowing them to finish a two-year master's program in one year.
