BSE in Special Education (night/online) & Paraprofessional Grant

BSU Continuing Studies will add a Bachelor of Science in Psychology to its list of online degree programs and a new night degree, Bachelor of Social Work (BSW), in Fall 2021. Both programs are designed for part-time students.

BSU's Special Education department is also working with the Massachusetts Department of Education on a grant program that will provide up to $6,000 per year to working paraprofessionals who pursue their degree in Special Education at BSU.

Continuing Studies night and online degree programs are designed for part-time students who seek flexibility and independence. Our degree programs follow the same curriculum and rigorous requirements as our day programs. Many faculty members who teach during the day also provide instruction at night and online. We offer more than 550 night and online courses each semester.

BS in Psychology (online)

Continuing Studies offers the Psychology degree at night and fully online. Students in our online degree programs are not limited to online courses only. Our students may enroll in on-campus or hybrid courses in pursuit of their degree.

BSU's psychology curriculum encompasses a strong liberal arts foundation, ensuring a well-rounded education. While some psychology majors may choose to become psychologists, the career paths for someone with such skills and knowledge are numerous. Students benefit from a faculty that is well-rounded with expertise in social, biological, clinical, cognitive and developmental psychology.

Bachelor of Social Work (night program)

The BSW night degree program will offer two social work courses each semester in the fall and spring over a three-year period. Social work students, alumni, staff and faculty work together to advance social justice by empowering individuals, groups, organizations and communities to engage positively in situations of crisis. Established in 1980, the BSU Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) program is the largest program of its kind in Massachusetts.

Students engage in hands-on experience and learn through a combination of classroom learning, intensive field education and professional mentoring by faculty. Our students graduate with professional practice competencies in the knowledge, skills, values and ethics of social work.

Bridgewater State University's BSW and MSW programs are fully accredited by the Council on Social Work Education.
