Social Work (64 hours)
The Anderson University Social Work program is accredited by the Council of Social Work Education (CSWE). The program of study prepares students for entry-level professional social-service positions Whether students are interested in working with children or adults, mental health concerns or family services, faith-based organizations or public agencies, or any of a multitude of other social concerns, they graduate with the foundational knowledge, skills, and values to pursue their calling.
The mission of AU’s social work program is to prepare competent, compassionate, and effective entry-level social workers who are ready for professional generalist practice, are committed to justice for those in need (based on Isaiah 1:17), and are equipped to be servant leaders in their world.
