The Department of Social Work is committed to providing students with the essential skills and knowledge needed to work in the field of social work, while offering opportunities for personal growth and development. Our generalist Bachelor's of Social Work (BSW) and advanced generalist Master's of Social Work (MSW) programs are designed to prepare students for social work practice with individuals, families, groups, organizations and communities. We strive to equip students with a broad base of skills that provide multiple options for a career in social work. With a focus on cultural competence, social justice and working with American Indian communities, the UMD Social Work Program uniquely prepares students to work in a challenging and diverse field that where they can truly make a difference in people's lives.
