Social Work at Sacred Heart University is pleased to offer both undergraduate (BSW) and graduate (MSW) social work programs. Both programs prepare future social workers to integrate micro, mezzo, and macro practice to best serve client systems in an ever-changing world within a social justice framework utilizing the Catholic Intellectual Tradition.
