Welcome to the School of Social Work at the University of
School Director Bonnie Yegidis
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
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.

you will choose to visit the School
of Social Work and explore the programs that we offer.
