California State University, Sacramento
Social Work B.A.

Social Work B.A.

Social workers seek to help people address their own needs and influence the responsiveness of organizations, communities, and other social institutions, thus promoting social justice and social change. Towards these ends, multilevel social work activities include group work, community organization, supervision, individual and family counseling, consultation, administration, advocacy, social and political action, policy development and implementation, education, and research and evaluation. In practice, social workers are sensitive to cultural and ethnic diversity, and work to combat discrimination, oppression, poverty, and other forms of social injustice.

The principle objective of the Bachelor of Arts in Social Work degree program is to educate beginning professional practitioners as generalists. The Master of Social Work degree program supports advanced professional practice.
