What’s the Difference Between a BSW and an MSW?

Many social work or human services professionals hold a Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) which prepares students for entry-level general practice in family services, child welfare, public health and substance abuse. 

A BSW degree does not allow graduates to practice clinical social work (which requires a Master’s Level education and licensure exam), many students pursue a BSW as a stepping stone to graduate studies.

Master of Social Work (MSW) prepares professionals to do advanced specialized clinical work in direct practice or administration. A typical clinical social worker will provide individual, group, and family therapy to develop strategies to change behavior or cope with difficult situations.
