Thank you for your interest in Boston College School of Social Work. Founded in 1936, the Boston College School of Social Work is a school steadfast in its pursuit of rigorous scholarship, preparation of students for competent and compassionate practice, and promotion of social justice.

At BCSSW, we recognize the imperative for innovative research that anticipates demographic and socio-economic trends, develops policies based on sound evidence, and is capable of building bridges between disciplines and across communities, both local and global.

BCSSW is in the vanguard of those leading social work practice in new directions, and our scholars are engaging with the fields of neuroscience, entrepreneurship, implementation science, public health, environmental equity, and migration in order that we may collectively effect positive change.

At BCSSW, we place a strong emphasis on partnering with the communities in which we live and work, because together, we are stronger. We believe that, in tandem, we have the tools and the knowledge to innovate to transform our shared world.
