UNF will begin offering a new bachelor’s of social work degree in the 2013-14 school year.

According to a press release, the university is accepting applications for the program until July 1. The program will accept 40 students each fall.

The press release also said the university decided to add the program because of the growing demand for social workers.

The new program is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education and will be part of the Department of Sociology and Anthropology.

Dr. Krista Paulsen, chair of the Department of Sociology and Anthropology, said students have requested this degree over the last few years. She also said she expects students with this degree to be in high demand in the local community.
