Global Education

The UGA School of Social Work is enriched by international students and is proud of its continuing study abroad programs in Ghana and Northern Ireland.  Faculty have pursued projects in countries such as Haiti, China, Mexico and South Korea. Students have independently participated in programs in Cambodia, Latin America and elsewhere. Additionally, the International Social Work Student Association (ISWSA) enthusiastically promotes the international dimensions of social work at “home” through a variety of activities.

Global education faculty encourage the development of international partnerships and practicum sites, including a partnership with the UGA Center for Global Health to offer a graduate Certificate in Global Health for MSW students who are in the Community Empowerment track.  The UGA School of Social Work also maintains a close working relationship with the UGA Office of International Education
