          The Department of Social Work prepares BSW and MSW graduates for competent and effective social work practice and for a career committed to the importance of human relationships, social and economic justice, cultural competency, advocacy for oppressed and at-risk populations, lifelong learning, and active participation, contributions and leadership in the larger community.  

          The program strives to achieve its mission by providing access to a quality, Council on Social Work Education (CSWE)-accredited education that offers a range of learning experiences and opportunities for students to develop and apply social work knowledge, values, ethics, and skills.

          Program requirements are designed to prepare students for practice with client systems of various sizes and types. A recent study revealed that 96 percent of EU social work graduates obtained professional employment in the field. Majors in the Department's degree programs have had considerable success in admission to graduate schools.
