In collaboration with Great Basin College, the University of Nevada’s School of Social Work program offers a dynamic schedule for students who reside in rural Nevada and wish to pursue a bachelor’s degree in social work—a profession that also happens to be in high demand in rural Nevada.
Through this program, all students in the GBC’s are of outreach are able to complete the equivalent of the first three years of academic study at GBC through online classes and interactive video classes.
Students complete their final year of study as a UNR student through online classes while completing an internship in their own communities. They must attend a weekend class once a month at UNR.
Social workers perform a broad spectrum of duties ranging from child and family social workers, gerontology, mental health, social justice and more.
