Social Work Program

decorative edge

The Social Work major provides students with the knowledge, values and skills necessary to begin social work practice as they advance social justice, human rights and client well-being. Graduates of the program are prepared to serve diverse client populations — especially those most vulnerable and oppressed. The major combines a liberal arts perspective with professional social work education in the classroom and in field settings throughout eastern Connecticut. Eastern’s Social Work program is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE).
