Social workers serve as community organizers and legislators.
Students will be prepared for entry-level professional practice at the baccalaureate-degree level. ODU’s Social Work curriculum is designed to provide students with foundation knowledge, skills and values needed to work across a range of settings and with varied client populations and problems. Our graduates are eligible to apply to be licensed social workers in the state of Ohio and in other states that license baccalaureate-level social workers. Because ODU’s Social Work program is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE), our students have the opportunity to complete their Master of Social Work Degree in approximately half of the time required in traditional social work master degree programs.
