What does CSWE accreditation mean for current, future, and former social work learners?
For current and future students in our BSW program, CSWE accreditation serves to validate the quality of the degree program and the education our curriculum provides. As a respected educational authority in the field of social work, the CSWE expresses a standard of academic excellence that degree programs must reach or exceed. Graduating from an accredited BSW program like ours signals to future social work employers and clients that you have earned the education you need to practice at a high level.
Prior to 2023, our BSW program was in candidacy for accreditation. Accreditation is also assigned retroactively. That means learners who enrolled in our BSW program before 2023 are recognized as attending an accredited BSW program now that it has achieved accreditation.
