The field of social work addresses a wide range of social issues, including juvenile justice, poverty, substance abuse, violence against minorities, ex-offender rehabilitation, housing discrimination, immigration issues and others. Housed in the School of Social Work, our programs prepare you to be ethical and culturally competent social work practitioners and leaders who are committed to social and economic justice, the eradication of barriers and the fullest development of human potential. Through classes and hands-on fieldwork, you will learn clinical skills and evidence-based practices that enable you to support and advocate for vulnerable populations, including children, the elderly and those living in poverty.
