Welcome to the Department of Social Work
UTEP’s location, in a bi-national, bi-cultural urban community of 1.5 million people on the U.S.-Mexico border, gives our students a unique perspective on social work. The Department of Social Work is committed to educate culturally competent practitioners. By combining classroom work and practicum fieldwork in social service agencies in El Paso, Texas and the region, UTEP students graduate with the skills and knowledge to practice social work in a wide variety of settings.
The UTEP Department of Social Work administers two degree programs. The Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) prepares students for generalist practice. Over 140 students are enrolled in the BSW Program. The Master of Social Work (MSW) prepares students for advanced practice with a concentration in Social Work in the Border Region. The MSW Program enrolls 55 students.
