The MSW program offers courses and field work that enable students to think critically about the social and economical challenges facing at-risk children, adults and the elderly. Students are equipped with the personal and technical skills to serve society’s neediest members but are grounded in the research necessary to solve some of their greatest problems. The program is designed to prepare students for direct agency-based practice, management of nonprofit and public agencies, and direct community practice and leadership positions in the social work profession.
The mission of the School of Social Work is to expand knowledge regarding social problems and programs, to educate social workers for advanced practice and to provide leadership in the development of socially and economically just policies and programs that strengthen individuals, families, groups, organizations and communities.
UNC’s School of Social Work offers graduate level degrees in social work (MSW and PhD) and dual degree masters programs in:
- Divinity (in conjunction with the Duke University Divinity School)
