Social Work

Social work is both a profession and a method of helping. As a profession, social work assists individuals, families, groups, organizations, and the community to meet their needs, solve problems, obtain resources, and achieve goals. As a method of helping, social work involves purposeful use of professional knowledge, skills, and values to facilitate development and change in various client systems.

The baccalaureate Social Work program employs a liberal arts perspective that provides students with analytical, conceptual, and interactional skills that allow them to identify client strengths and resources, to implement planned change, and to intervene in problem situations.

The major in Social Work prepares students for professional generalist social work practice at the beginning level and for graduate study. The baccalaureate degree program is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education.
