The School of Social Work has maintained the prestigious Council on Social Work Education accreditation since 1973 and continues to uphold an outstanding regional reputation for its quality undergraduate program and community and regional service. The diverse curriculum provides a deep knowledge base and skill set related to social welfare, human behavior and the social environment, social work research, social policy and generalist practice—preparing students to advance social justice, economic justice and human rights on a local to global scale.
Courses are taught by faculty with extensive and diverse social work experience in areas such as child and public welfare, medical, psychiatric and gerontological social work, mental health, domestic violence, chemical dependency, and more. In addition to classroom study, students acquire practical, hands-on skills by completing two human service experiences and a 480-hour internship—preparing students for entry-level licensed generalist social work practice, graduate school and successful career paths in health care, the social assistance industry or local and state government agencies.
