  • Main Content

    Eastern Washington University offers a full-time BASW degree that can be completed in two years.  Classes are held on the Cheney campus during the first year and both the Cheney and the Riverpoint campus in Spokane during the second year.  Social work classes are held during the day in 2-4 hour blocks,  and depending on the quarter, are held 2-4 days per week. The core curriculum is not offered in the evening or online. Electives are available in-person during the day on the Cheney campus, in the evening at Riverpoint in Spokane or online.

    Field Education (practicum) is three quarters and starts in the fall of the second year.  Our practicum placement process is very structured and students do not seek their own placement. We work closely with the student and agency to assure learning goals are met.
