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).

Prepared for the World

“Whether I continue working in Learning and Development, Organizational Effectiveness or choose another route altogether, my Humanities degree prepared me for the world, because it prepared me for deeply engaging with people, meeting them where they are and understanding their needs across all levels.”

– Lindsey (Leach) Simpkins, Class of ’05
