Social Work

Chair's Message

On behalf of the faculty, staff, and students of the Department of Social Work, welcome!  The department embraces the motto Excellence Matters. It is the cornerstone of everything that we do.  We offer a robust BSW program and on campus, weekend, and online traditional and advanced standing MSW programs.  Our student-focused faculty are leaders of the profession, recognized scholars, seasoned practitioners, and top-notch educators who engage, mentor, advise, and positively challenge students to reach their full potential as social work practitioners.  The Office of Field Instruction works diligently to match students' interests with a diverse pool of community-based, local, and state agencies which address a range of human, community and societal need.

I invite you to consider learning more about Social Work at Winthrop University, where Excellence Matters!
