    Established in 1957, the Wurzweiler School of Social Work offer a "methods-based" curriculum and concentrations in social/clinical casework, social group work and community social work/administration. Field placement agencies are selected for their diversity, quality of service to the community, opportunities for learning, expertise of supervisors and eagerness to collaborate with the school to create a challenging educational venture for our students.

    Our students come from over 60 countries, including Israel, Canada, France, Japan, South America, Eastern Europe and Africa. Many are just like you—working people who have to balance the demands of school, work and family. Students find that our individual attention and flexible programming help them succeed.

    Since our inception, more than 7,000 students have received master's degrees and more than 165 doctorates have been awarded.

    Our alumni are therapists, managers, administrators, researchers, professors of social work, college deans and legislators. They are employed in every sector of social services, from neighborhood agencies to the federal government, and are committed to improving the lives of vulnerable populations throughout the world. We emphasize values and ethics, as well as respect for ethnicity, and recognize the importance of religious beliefs and spirituality.
