International Programs

Since its founding, Boston College Graduate School of Social Work has been committed to the international dimensions of social problems and social work. Though the issues each country or community faces may be unique, the research-driven knowledge, experience-based insight, and field-tested skills required to address them are endlessly adaptable—as our graduates demonstrate throughout the world.

Our renowned MSW Global Practice Concentration has taken students to five different continents where they were placed in refugee camps, child abuse centers, women's empowerment programs, and a wide range of other social service agencies.

As a Global Practice student, you might provide HIV/AIDS counseling, draft immigration policies, help develop programs for sexually exploited girls and teens, or evaluate housing for the poor.
