Masters in Social Work

Dr. Melissa Littlefield, Chairperson

The masters department in the School of Social Work has a mission that complements the university and is consistent with the purposes of social work education by preparing autonomous social work professionals to become leaders in the urban community. The department's emphasis on alleviating poverty and human suffering, oppression, and injustice through multi-level and specialized fields of practice further addresses the hallmarks of the social work profession.
