Welcome to the Boston College School of Social Work website. We have created these pages to provide you with details about our truly outstanding school. We update our site regularly to keep you informed of news, events, and opportunities in the social work field. We have worked hard to match the energy, excitement, and innovation of the students and faculty here at BC.
The School of Social Work is at the very heart of BC's mission of social justice. Our programs incorporate and reflect the Jesuit goals of this unique university, located on the outskirts of a welcoming, international city. The Jesuit foundation makes it possible that rational thought and faith, logical inquiry and belief, are seen as complementary and synergistic.
Our faculty excels in teaching, research, and service. Our students succeed in a rigorous academic setting. Yet, we never lose sight of our major goal: to assist and empower the disadvantaged members of our society who are entitled to social justice.
We are proud that our school is known and admired for the heartfelt dedication of our faculty, staff, and administrators. We want your experience here to be enriching and delightful. We are committed to working with students, agencies, and others to find out how our resources can best match their needs and capacities. Please take the opportunity to explore our website, learn more about us, and tell us how we may best serve you.
