Social Work Department

Social Work is a professional art, based on an eclectic, scientific body of theory, incorporating practice, knowledge, and skill, and fused to specific ethics with inherent social value assumptions. The profession is oriented toward helping in the resolution of diverse individual and social problems, the provision for meeting broad human and community needs, and the enhancement of personal or social functioning. The primary goal of the social work program is to prepare students for beginning professional generalist social work practice.
