Social Work

Social Work professionals are employed in multiple social service agencies, working with a wide variety of vulnerable populations from within the helping profession.


The mission of the Social Work program is to equip students to enhance human well being and to meet basic human needs. We believe that people are impacted by their environment. Our students gain first-hand knowledge regarding individuals, families, groups, communities, and organizations in order to better understand this impact. Graduates will be prepared for entry-level social work practice through a variety of classroom, volunteer, and practicum experiences.

The Bachelor of Social Work degree is offered entirely online. Regardless of where students live and work, they can attend IWU, be a part of the IWU community, and become prepared for generalist social work practice.
