Welcome to the Winthrop University Department of Social Work where we
offer BSW and MSW degree programs that are fully accredited by the Council on Social Work Education as well as a minor in Social Welfare.
At Winthrop you will find national caliber faculty dedicated to student
learning, research, and community service.
As a student-centered learning community, we follow the core social work
values of the social work profession, including social justice, the dignity and
worth of the person, and the importance of human relationships. Our students are actively engaged in an
enriching learning environment that values learning based on scientific inquiry
and a commitment to evidence-based practice.
In addition, faculty are engaged in projects involving program
development, evaluation, and enrichment across the state and region.
Social work is the profession of people helping people. If you are committed to improving human
lives, if you value human diversity, and if you believe in the importance of
improving social systems and institutions such that they are more
person-centered, then social work just may be the profession for you. I invite you to consider joining the social
work learning community here at Winthrop where we are dedicated to state of the
art social work education in a student-centered learning environment.
