Improving the lives of at-risk populations. Promoting diversity. Advancing social justice.
These are hallmark efforts of the social work department. Where we emphasize the inseparable ideals of service and study. Where we teach you about the social issues of the world so you can help better the world.
Our educational promise to you is that the focus always will be on you. We’re a nationally accredited program with a personal touch. Small classes, individualized advising, and collaborative research remain trademarks of our program.
You’ll be engaged through classroom learning and professionally supervised internships — engagement opportunities that prepare you for immediate employment or graduate school.
For 40 years, graduates of our program have gained employment as clinical counselors, child welfare advocates, social policy developers, and program directors — among many other professions. They know what it means to “do good” and “do well.”
