The BSSW Program of the UT College of Social Work

Greetings from the Director

Robert Mindrup, Interim DirectorOn behalf of the College of the Social Work, I want to thank you for your interest in our BSSW program. The BSSW program is fully accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE).

The BSSW curriculum, which includes field practice experiences, is geared toward preparing students to become highly competent social workers who advance human rights, engage in practice-informed research and policy practice, engage diversity in practice, and effectively encounter and strategically work with individuals, families, groups, organizations and communities. Firmly rooted in our professional code of ethics, students work with faculty and field instructors who are connected with and committed to advancing social, economic, and environmental justice for all.

The BSSW program has a very active student body through the Bachelor's Social Work Organization (BSWO), who engage in many student led activities ranging from community service to advocacy to fundraising events throughout the academic year.

We highly encourage you to read more about the BSSW program on our website, including ways to complete your Bachelor's and Master's degree in social work in only five years!

For any questions or requests for additional information, please feel free to contact the BSSW Program at: or call 865-974-3352.

Cheers (and go VOLS!),

Robert Mindrup, PsyD, MSSW
Interim BSSW Program Director
