Social workers help people. Whether it's helping with solving and coping with everyday problems or diagnosing and treating mental, behavioral, and emotional issues, social work seeks to improves the quality of life of the people they serve.
Our goal is to prepare students for empowerment oriented generalist social work practice and/or for graduate study in social work
Generalist practice is the application of professional knowledge, values, and skills to target any size system (individual, family, group, organization, community) for change. It employs a problem-solving process and relies on critical thinking. Generalist practitioners work within an organizational structure in which they use appropriate supervision and assume a wide range of professional roles
