Salisbury University - University of Maryland University College
(UMUC) Europe - BASW Program
Beginning March of 2014, the Introduction to Social Work and
Social Welfare course in the Bachelor of Arts in Social Work (BASW)
program will be offered in the Kaiserslautern Military Community
The BASW is a professional degree which makes it different from
another sort of major.
The Council on Social Work Education, the body which
accredits social work education programs, says that a student
must be accepted into the BASW program.
As such you are expected to become a professional and to
demonstrate professional behavior while completing your BASW.
If you are admitted into the BASW program you will
undertake a field placement near the end of your program of
study while you are taking advanced practice and research
courses. You will
graduate as a generalist social work practitioner.
If you do well, you will be eligible to apply for the
