It takes more than good intentions to be an effective social worker. It takes evidence-based knowledge, field-tested skills, and a wealth of hands-on experience—the core components of our MSW Program.

Our empirically focused approach to social work makes us thoughtful leaders in the field. Our respected International Programs extend our reach and global impact. Accordingly, students in our PhD Program advance the fields of social welfare and social work.

Our Advising Center provides students with guidance and information whose focus is on integrating the full educational experience from entering our program through graduation and on to launching careers as professional social workers. We are committed to lifelong learning in our Continuing Education program.

If you have the passion to serve and the commitment to affect change, our curriculum will provide everything you need to build a strong academic foundation.
