Social Work

Cognizant to Republic Act 4373 otherwise as the “Social Work Law” formally recognizing the profession of social work in the Philippines , the Bachelor of Science in Social Work (BSSW) is an undergraduate program that prepares students for direct [generalist] practice of social work with individuals, families, groups, and communities.

The profession aims to advance the growth and empowerment of people development and social progress of discrimination and inequality among marginalized individuals, families, groups and communities. The hallmarks of the profession are the promotion of social change, empowerment and problem solving in human relationships.

The enactment of the law and the specification of the BSWW curriculum should be able to distinguish a professional social worker from other professionals like community development worker, counselor, nurse psychologist, teachers and others.
