Española Social Work Program

New Mexico Highlands’ bachelor of social work degree program in Española prepares students for entry-level generalist social work practice and trains students to work sensitively and competently with the diverse multicultural populations of New Mexico and the Southwest. Our program was developed with the working student in mind and is geared to accommodate both traditional
and nontraditional students. All classes are offered on Fridays and Saturdays at the Northern New Mexico College Campus. This flexible class schedule affords students the opportunity to attend on a full- or part-time basis.

The university maintains progressive and positive working relationships with numerous social service organizations throughout Northern New Mexico, thus providing the student with a wide array of internship opportunities.

Upon completion of the B.S.W. program, eligible students may choose to pursue the advanced standing, one year M.S.W. program offered at the main campus in Las Vegas, NM, or pursue the two year M.S.W. program at any of the school’s program locations.
