Director's Welcome

The profession of social work is concerned with providing assistance, social and economic support, and advocacy on behalf individuals, families and communities. Through our practice we help to empower those in need, especially vulnerable populations. We also teach students to be engaged in community change and the policy-making processes that affect our clients and communities. The School of Social Work at UCF has a rich history of improving the communities we serve in Central Florida. 

The School of Social Work offers the BSW and MSW degrees. Both degree programs are fully accredited by the Council on Social Work Education, the national accrediting agency that ensures quality in the design and delivery of social work education programs. The school also participates in an interdisciplinary Doctoral Program in Public Affairs, with a Track in Social Work.

Faculty members in the school are excellent instructors and are also fully engaged in community advocacy programs and groups. Faculty members also participate in research activity that support their instruction and also improves the practice of social work in the community.

Thank you for visiting our website. We hope that many of you will choose to visit the School
of Social Work and explore the programs that we offer.
