Social Work (BSW)

FSU Panama City’s nationally accredited BSW program provides quality preparation and experience for entry-level practitioners who will work with diverse client systems and problems.

The curriculum requires about four semesters to complete all course requirements for the major and 12 hours of field instruction. A supervised agency placement translates theory into practice, broadening your range of skills and strengthening your awareness of attitudes, motivations and judgments identified with the profession of social work.
