The UNT Social Work program is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE):1701 Duke Street
Alexandria, VA 22314
This accreditation means that our program meets or exceeds strict academic standards for excellence in education. Students who have earned a Bachelor's degree in Social Work (BSW) from a CSWE accredited institution are eligible to become licensed social workers in the State of Texas. In most cases, they are also eligible for "advanced standing" if they decide to purse a Master's degree in Social Work (MSW). While details differ by graduate program, students with advanced standing are exempt from taking certain graduate classes. This enables them to earn an MSW in less time.
