The Graduate School of Social Work and Social Research (GSSWSR) is distinctive for its dedication to fine teaching, individual attention, and high academic standards within a liberal arts tradition. Founded in 1915, the GSSWSR has always embraced scholarship, practice, and collaboration within social work and social welfare.
An educational program must prepare professional social workers with the multidisciplinary knowledge, practical skills, and necessary values to provide leadership to address the rapidly growing and increasingly complex challenges impacting the biopsychosocial conditions of children and families.
By offering three degree programs, the GSSWSR makes it possible for students to experience and explore the full range of theories and skills necessary for today's social work practitioner, researcher, or academic. The program goals and objectives are designed to exceed the multiple expectations placed on social work professionals.
