Complete your B.S. degree in 2 years by enrolling in USJ's BSW Completion Program

USJ's BSW Completion Program is designed for qualified students who have earned 60 transferable credits or an associate degree the opportunity to complete their B.S. degree.

The USJ Social Work Completion Program is an accelerated two-year program leading to the completion of the academic requirements for a bachelor’s degree.


Students in the Bachelor's of Social Work Completion program enter with 100 hours of Human Services internship experience or 180 hours of work or volunteer experience in the human service or related field over at least a three month period. You will be studying with other adults who have work experience and need to complete their college degree to advance their career in this Council on Social Work Education accredited BSW program. Many USJ students will qualify to enter graduate school with advanced standing and complete their master's degree in Social Work in one year rather than the usual two. More than 90% of the University of Saint Joseph Social Work graduates go on to earn their MSW degree.

Career Opportunities
