Hybrid Social Work Program

Be among the most in demand!  Graduates of the LCSC Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) program are among the most qualified and prepared human service professionals in the region.

The Hybrid Social Work Program is an extension of the Lewiston Program.  It offers a unique combination of on-line and hybrid social work courses.  Hybrid courses are taught predominately on-line with two pre-scheduled Saturday face-to-face intensives.  During these intensives, students will come to the Lewiston or Coeur d'Alene campus to receive instruction from their professors and participate in skill-based practice with peers.

To begin enrolling in 300 level Hybrid courses, students must electronically complete the Hybrid Statement of Intent to indicate their intent in taking all their courses within this cohort.  To complete the form electronically, fill out the form in the web browser, download it, then submit to [email protected] Hybrid Statement of Intent forms are accepted based on criteria and space available.   

Formal Application Process

Students in the Hybrid Program may have already completed their general education requirements or may take them concurrently with their social work courses.  As each individual is unique, students will be assigned an advisor to plan their course schedule.  During the fall semester prior to their senior year, students formally apply to the Accredited Social Work Program.  Provisional acceptance may be given if students are in progress towards these requirements.
