Are BA and BSW the same?

You could hear social work programs referred to as a Bachelor of Social Social Work (BSW) or a Bachelor of Arts in Social Work (BASW). The general education requirements and school structure are the only factors that account for these variations.

While some institutions construct an independent program, others incorporate social work courses into the science or art curricula. Despite the variations in nomenclature, any approved institution can prepare you to work at the same level.

How many subjects are in BSW in Nepal?

In total, TU provides 9 papers as part of the BSW degree, including required fieldwork, research, academic writing, and report writing courses in different years.

The BSW course is open to students of either science, management, humanities, or even hotel management streams.
