Creating Solutions Out of Challenges

Social workers help individuals, families, groups and communities improve their quality of life. With our focus on the "person-in-environment" paradigm, our program uniquely prepares you to make a meaningful difference in the lives of those who are vulnerable, oppressed or living in poverty. 


Social work is one of the fastest growing job markets in the US. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, social work employment is expected to increase 13% from 2019-2029.
