Social Work

Engage in personal and community change


Pursue a career and your calling in making society a better place for everyone.

Working holistically while recognizing and advancing human rights, you will have the opportunity to respond to those in need in order to promote social change and justice. 

Help individuals, as well as society, thrive by promoting positive change and work to give all people an equal opportunity to be healthy. Work with community organizations and government policies to level the playing field and give people opportunities to grow and develop into their best selves.

Small class sizes and opportunities to work closely with peers and professors are keys to student success.
