“The social work program at Buena Vista University helped prepare me for my career by providing a well-rounded education. In the social work field, we work with a wide variety of people and need to know how to best work with these people. At BVU, not one population is focused on, but instead the program prepares students to work with many different populations. BVU social work students graduate with a minimum of 600 hours of hands-on field experience plus many other opportunities for volunteer work.”
