The bachelor’s degree program in social work is coming to Troy University’s Montgomery Campus this fall.

The program will be offered in a blended format, featuring both in-class and online courses, and provides an excellent opportunity for working adult students to pursue their career goals while maintaining their job and family responsibilities.

“The offering is blended, meaning there will be evening classes and on-line classes in a term setting to combine for the 60-hour major,” said Dr. Denise Green, interim dean of TROY’s College of Health and Human Services. “Students can maintain their jobs and attend school at the number one program in the state. Finally, the student will be able to secure a practicum in the Montgomery area.”

The Master of Social Work program has seen tremendous growth at the Montgomery Campus, leading university officials to see the need to offer the undergraduate program.

“The River Region is a perfect setting for a non-traditional BSW program,” said Dr. Lance Tatum, Montgomery Campus vice chancellor. “The flexibility of program delivery, coupled with the outstanding Social Work faculty already on the TROY Montgomery Campus, will serve well those individuals seeking a career that focuses on serving their community.”

Social workers are employed in a variety of different career areas, including healthcare, public health, child services, schools, mental health, substance abuse, corrections and community and family. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the field of social work is growing at a rate of 19 percent.

Students in TROY’s Bachelor’s in Social Work program will complete assignments and tasks and receive instruction from an experienced, professional faculty that will prepare them for real-world experiences upon graduation.
