Bachelor of Social Work

Undergraduate social work education at UTA is based on a set of premises. Responsible citizenship and professional social work practice recognize and respond to the realities of a complex and diverse society that is in continual need of constructive social change predicated on social justice. To this end, social work students are expected to demonstrate the capacity to critically evaluate their cultural environment and, in so doing, demonstrate analytical skills and understanding both orally and in writing. Students are required to adhere to the  Code of Ethics as currently published by the National Association of Social Workers , the  Texas State Board of Social Worker Examiners Code of Conduct  and the UTA School of Social Work Professional Standards (  in the BSW Program Manual  ) in their professional practice and in their course work. The  faculty of the School of Social Work  enhance this process through their commitment to teaching excellence, scholarly activities, research, and community and professional service.
