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 Indiana Wesleyan University Social Work major 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.
Students may also choose to minor in Sociology as a supplement to another IWU major.
Our program has been accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) for over 25 years.
