The Bachelor of Science in Social Work Program (BSSW) at The Ohio State University at Marion prepares students to assume beginning professional roles as direct service practitioners in social welfare organizations, and lays the foundation for further social work education at the graduate level. The major is built upon a sequence of courses that provides a strong liberal arts perspective and features social work courses designed to enable the development of a common base of skills in the areas of social policy and program analysis, human behavior in the social environment, diversity, social work practice, and social work research.
Beginning in autumn semester 2013, course offerings for social work at Marion will be expanded to junior-level social work major courses. Both junior-level and senior-level major social work courses will be offered beginning in autumn semester 2014. This expanded course selection, along with our first and second year courses in social work, will provide students the opportunity to complete the entire Ohio State Bachelor Science in Social Work program on the Marion campus.
The Ohio State University at Marion baccalaureate degree program blends distance-learning technologies with traditional classroom instruction. Courses at Marion are taught by both faculty within the College of Social Work and regional campus faculty. Regional campus students will receive the same comprehensive social work education that they would receive on the Columbus campus.
