Dean Nina Heller announced the appointment of Dr. Lisa Werkmeister Rozas as Director of the newly established Bachelor of Social Work Program. “Lisa brings great excitement and energy to this project and her earlier practice experience, scholarship and teaching of diversity and anti-oppressive practice bring important perspectives and skills to generalist bachelors level social work,” said Heller.
We will launch our new BSW program in the Fall of 2018 as the signature undergraduate program for the Hartford Campus. Students will apply as sophomores for admittance in their junior year and will complete field internships in units within the city. Qualified graduates are then eligible to apply for our Advanced Standing MSW program. The addition of the BSW program makes us the only school in Connecticut to offer the BSW, MSW and PhD degrees.
