The School of Social Work at California State University, Long Beach (CSULB) welcomes your interest in our School and the programs we offer. The School of Social Work offers a two-year professional program leading to a Bachelor of Arts in Social Work (BASW) degree.
Our Bachelor of Arts in Social Work (BASW) program is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE).

Field Education Requirements: Fieldwork is an integral part of the BASW curriculum, providing an opportunity for students to apply social work knowledge and practice skills in an agency based, educationally focused field setting.
