About Social Work at Keuka College
A social worker provides counseling to individuals, groups, families, and communities during some of life's most difficult challenges. Social workers help to restore functioning via a biological, psychological, social and spiritual framework that offers a unique perspective regarding people in their environments. As a Keuka College social work student, you will combine coursework with hands-on, practical experience that will teach you how to use empowerment to create positive conditions for people to thrive.
The Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) accredited BSW program at Keuka College is competency-based and the learning in courses is layered to produce a well-rounded seasoned social worker. You will have the ability to provide therapeutic services to disenfranchised populations, including but not limited to vulnerable children/families, aging, LGBT, substance use/abuse, intimate partner violence, and those living in poverty.
