Bachelor of Science
This major will teach students how to empower individuals with social, emotional and behavioral challenges—with an emphasis on helping those who are vulnerable, oppressed and living in poverty. Students will learn the skills of helping to address physical and emotional needs, but they will also be challenged to address the deep spiritual void that affects so many disadvantaged people.
You will be encouraged to grow in your faith, challenged to appreciate the diversity of God’s children, and expected to share the love of God through works of service and social advocacy. Entry level social work jobs include: foster care case management; residential treatment for people suffering from addictions, mental illness or developmental disabilities; protective services for victims of abuse; support and care of the elderly; prison ministry; advocacy for the mentally ill; and church and parachurch outreach.
