Welcome to the North Carolina State University Department of Social Work

Our social work program was one of the first in the State of North Carolina. The year 2014 will mark our 40th Anniversary of being a CSWE accredited social work program.  Over the years, we have grown in size, structure and functioning as an academic unit. This growth and expansion would not have been possible without the success of our graduates.  The Department of Social Work offers a BSW and an MSW degree. We seek to provide students with the knowledge, values and skills to respond competently to the aspirations and service needs of diverse populations and to the contexts that shape the needs of the clients and service delivery systems locally, nationally and globally. Our students are educated and trained in a generalist social work model with a particular focus on social and economic justice.

Our community of faculty scholars represents a wealth of knowledge and expertise. We are very involved in mico, mezzo, and macro level practice, conducting research, providing consultation, supervision and  training for human service staff, and serving on local, regional and national boards.

You are invited to explore our website and learn about our degree offerings, support for students, and service to NC State University and the community at large.
