Our Mission

“The mission of the School of Social Work and Human Services of Kentucky Christian University is to prepare students for careers as Christian human service professionals.”


 

When people have problems, are you the one they turn to? Are you a concerned listener and willing to help? If this sounds like you, Social Work or Counseling Psychology may be a great career choice for you! As a matter of fact, KCU’s School of Social Work & Human Services mission is to prepare students for careers as Christian human service professionals. Graduates of our School are well prepared for practice as entry level workers in social service agencies as well as for graduate education or graduate school in their chosen field.

The School of Social Work and Human Services houses two separate degree programs:

Bachelor of Science, Counseling Psychology

Bachelor of Social Work

The uniqueness of our School is that graduates are well equipped to work with clients from diverse backgrounds without imposing their own values on their clients. Additionally, each program’s curriculum is infused with a Christ centered approach which supports students’ character development and brings a strong sense of purpose to their career choice.

In addition to classroom instruction, both degree programs offer opportunities for students to experience the “real world” through service projects, international service opportunities, professional conferences, agency volunteer experiences, and a practicum (internship) in a social service agency.

The Bachelor of Social Work Program is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE).

Discover Your Path

“The Humanities Department opened its doors right around the time where I was caught in a bit of a personal dilemma. I was studying music, but really wanted to further my studies in film through an internship in Los Angeles. The department was made for someone like me, who was trying to navigate a lot of artistic interests and find the career path buried in the middle of all of them. That internship changed my life and the KCU Humanities Department made it not only possible, but easy to follow my heart.”
