Our Mission

The School of Social Work at the University of Georgia prepares culturally responsive practitioners and scholars to be leaders in addressing social problems and promoting social justice, locally and globally, through teaching, research, and service.

Committed to excellence and impact.

Everything we do is informed by our commitment to well-being and social justice. And it shows: Our MSW graduates score well above the national average on social work licensure exams. More than half our BSW graduates complete their degrees with Latin honors. Our outreach connects vulnerable individuals and communities with the resources they need to live healthier, more productive lives. Our research wins national awards and informs social work practice and public policy.

No wonder we’re ranked No. 12 among public university social work graduate programs. No wonder College Factual ranks our undergraduate degree program No. 6 in the nation; graduates of our nonprofit management program build impactful and award-winning organizations; graduates of our doctoral program conduct ground-breaking research at universities around the world.
