Department of Social Work

If you enjoy working with diverse groups of people and advocating for human rights and social and economic justice, consider a career in social work. Our nationally accredited Bachelor and Master degrees have a broad, generalist social work focus with emphasis on the rural context.

Because our program integrates community service experiences with classroom learning, you will graduate ready to work directly with clients ranging from infants to the elderly and tackle real-world social issues such as poverty, child abuse, mental illness and disabilities.

Social Work Programs

Our degrees prepare you to work in a wide range of human service agencies, serve many types of clients and gain professional licensure.

Real-world Learning Opportunities

Field experience is an important part of the Social Work program. You will have the opportunity to work alongside professionals at local service agencies and address real-world issues.
