Welcome to the University of Georgia School of Social Work! As social workers, we are passionate about finding solutions for social problems and promoting well being and social justice. As social work educators, we are looking for people who share this passion.
Here at the School of Social Work we integrate a social justice focus with rigorous academic research and instruction in the best evidence-based clinical, community, and policy practices. Our school is dedicated to preparing culturally responsive social work practitioners and scholars who are equipped with the tools to make positive change happen. Our faculty are committed to doing this in partnership with our communities, and are dedicated to community-engaged research and service.
Students will find a variety of opportunities here, including scholarships and assistantships, international internships and study abroad options, as well as opportunities to engage in cutting-edge research with faculty and to develop independent projects through the Center for Social Justice, Human and Civil Rights.
If you are looking for a school that combines a caring community with an emphasis on excellence in teaching, dynamic research, and commitment to community service, we may well be what you’re looking for.
Please come visit us and see all that we have to offer. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions, suggestions or thoughts about opportunities that may be a good fit with our mission.
