Social Work


In striving for excellence, we aim to prepare social work professionals for generalist practice that promotes intersectional racial and social justice towards the well-being of people in a diverse and global society.

The BSW program at Augsburg is the oldest committed to social justice in Minnesota and the Upper Midwest. You will study social work with committed classmates, intern at top human service agencies, and be guided in your studies from some of the best social work faculty in Minnesota. The BSW degree is both an academic and professional degree. Interdisciplinary opportunities are accessible and rewarding. As a social work student you will be encouraged to be active and challenged to be excellent. The relationships you make with classmates and faculty will last a lifetime.

Our students can take advantage of the many study abroad opportunities offered by the Center for Global Education and Experience (CGEE). Our faculty often lead short-term courses to a wide variety of countries.


The BSW Program has been accredited since 1980 by the Council on Social Work Education. It has been re-accredited for next review in 2024.
