Social Work Program
LCSC offers the only fully accredited BSW in northern Idaho. The program includes courses prescribed by the Council on Social Work Education in research, practice methods, human behavior, social policy, and a variety of electives.
The Bachelor of Social Work is designed to prepare entry-level generalist practice social workers with the knowledge, skills, and values necessary to help families, groups, individuals and communities solve social problems and promote social justice. BSW students are trained in assessment, interviewing, intake, service planning, community outreach, advocacy, and case management. All students complete an internship during their senior year. BSW graduates are qualified to sit for the State Social Work License Exam.
Employed in a wide variety of public and private human service agencies, many graduates choose to enroll in a graduate program and pursue a Masters of Social Work.
