The BSW Department, established in 1984, has pioneered Social Work education at the undergraduate level in Karnataka. For the past two and half decades of its existence the BSW department is being recognised as a provider of quality education in social work at the Bachelor level. .

The Social Work Practicum involves students being placed in institutions of Education and Welfare. Focus is on learning through experience and application of theoretical perspectives in the field. The Final Year students are placed in villages/communities and involve themselves in Community Organisations, where the focus is on learning community profile, identifying local leaders, working towards community organisation and addressing community issues through a participatory and democratic approach.

The students are taught and supervised by faculty holding an MSW or M.Phil or PhD in Social Work.  The faculty is also engaged as consultants, and members of various committees holding important honorary posts in NGOs and University Teachers’ Associations.

Students are well placed through campus interview. Five students were selected to function as the coordinators for SANKALP’- a joint Project of ESIC& HLFPP in different districts of Karnataka in the year 2009.  A few are absorbed in NGOs and IT sector. A good number of graduates pursue Post graduate studies in the Campus and other institutions of higher learning inclusive of prestigious Tata Institute of Social Sciences and Nirmala Niketan, Mumbai
