Social Work

The social work program at Ohio University offers both a bachelor’s degree in social work and a master’s of social work (offered on-campus and 100% online). Both programs prepare students to serve as social workers in the rural community and to obtain state licensure as a social worker. The bachelor's degree in social work (BSW) provides a generalist focus while the master's of social work (MSW) degree has a rural focus and prepares social workers to work in clinical areas. Both programs provide extensive field experience enabling students to put into practice what they learn in the classroom. Faculty providing instruction in the programs are all accomplished social workers and well connected in the community.

Celebrating the Class of 2020: Hay Spurgeon

Although Hayden Spurgeon plans to pursue her master’s degree in social work at the University of Houston, her ultimate goal is to someday return to Athens and Ohio University to pursue her professional career.

Spurgeon is graduating a year early with dual degrees in social work and women’s gender and sexuality as well as a minor in psychology. It’s safe to say Spurgeon made the most of her time at OHIO — and that OHIO equally had a positive, lasting effect on her.
