|It is critical for our BSW graduates to acquire skills needed to think holistically, and to engage in the complex dynamics of person and environment interactions. Students are expected to approach practice from an informed planned practice strategy (i.e., engagement, assessment, intervention, and evaluation), with problem solving skills, and an emphasis on the strengths perspective. Students acquire the knowledge and skills needed to be effective entry-level practitioners through a curriculum which provides foundational tools for critical thinking, interdisciplinary learning, collaborative problem-solving, positive intellectual values, understanding of diversity, and effective communication.
