School of Social Work

The School of Social Work offers programs of study that prepare graduates to work in governmental, academic, non-profit, and for-profit settings in community, regional, state and national systems. Programs offered include: BSSW, MSW, MSW/MPH, MSW/JD, and PhD.

In its 2023 Graduate Program Rankings, U.S. News & World Report ranked our graduate program in the top 50 among public universities.

Through classroom and field experience, our students gain knowledge and skills vital to the practice and research of social work. Our internships occur in hundreds of community agencies throughout Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, and Monroe counties, resulting in over 100,000 internship hours contributed by our student interns each year. As a result, our graduates significantly impact the South Florida community and contribute substantially to the field of social work through direct practice, administration, advocacy, and research.

Accreditation 

Council on Social Work Education (CSWE)

The School of Social Work’s BSSW and MSW programs are fully accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE), an accrediting body that is responsible for setting the standards for and reviewing all accredited social work programs in the United States. At this time, CSWE does not accredit doctoral (PhD) programs.

Field Education Toolbox for Students

Welcome to the School of Social Work’s Office of Field Education! This portion of your educational journey is an exciting time that enables you to implement your classroom learning in the field. From your interview for fieldwork through your placement, you will receive an individualized and supportive experience from the team at this office. We thoroughly screen our community agencies and train the supervisors there to ensure the best possible educational experiences for our students. As a result, we have numerous placements throughout Miami-Dade, Broward, Monroe and Palm Beach Counties. We want you to have the best prospects for learning, so if you are aware of an agency that is missing from our repertoire, please fill out this form and we will explore.

Our students have access to myriad funding options by degree level (bachelor’s, master’s, doctoral) and by academic discipline (Public Health, Dietetics & Nutrition, Social Work).
