International Courses & Exchanges

Our international courses with a field component focus on social work issues in a variety of locations and are open to students of all concentrations. Students have had the opportunity to travel to and participate in community efforts in countries such as China, Cuba, Greece, India, Lesotho, Nepal, Northern Ireland, Romania, Tanzania, and Thailand to observe how social work affects local cultures. Watch a slideshow and read student reflections about their trip to Lesotho, Africa.

Our University Exchange Programs allow you to enroll for a semester at Universidad Alberto Hurtado in Santiago, Chile, where students can refresh their Spanish skills early in the semester, participating in a field practicum and taking academic courses.

Along with the National Association of Deans and Directors of Schools of Social Work and the Council on Social Work Education, we are a patron sponsor of the annual International Social Work Conference.
