Making a remarkable, real-world impact is at the center of UNC Greensboro’s school social work licensure program.

“Our students get lots of touch points throughout the entire bachelor of social work program with volunteering, community service, and then their formal internship,” says associate professor Beth Webb, who works directly with the school social work licensure students. Prior to coming to UNCG, Webb was a licensed school social worker for seven years.

Students wanting to earn a special subject area licensure in school social work, along with their bachelor of social work degree, apply to the licensure concentration during their third year. The social work program is through the School of Health and Human Sciences, while the licensure is part of the School of Education.
