The Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) is recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation as the sole accrediting body for social work programs in the USA. CSWE Accreditation begins with a request for candidacy and is then followed by a 3-benchmark process, which typically takes 3 years to earn initial accreditation.
The Bachelor of Social Work and Master of Social Work have achieved Candidacy for Accreditation by the Council on Social Work Education’s Commission on Accreditation. For more information about social work accreditation, you may contact Accreditation.
As field practice (e.g., internships) is considered to be the "signature pedagogy for social work" (CSWE, 2015), the UCCS Social Work program will rely heavily on field education and community agencies to help produce competent practitioners.
