In the College of Adult and Professional Studies, the Indiana Wesleyan University Social Work program is offered online and is tailored to meet the unique needs/experiences of working adults. It brings IWU’s Christian mission and vision, as well as an accredited Social Work program, to everyone.
The mission of the Social Work Program is to prepare social work students for entry-level social work practice and provide opportunities for students to become world changers who have a desire to integrate personal faith and learning to maximize one’s ability to be of service to fellow human beings.
Our goal is to provide an excellent foundation for generalist social work practice and advanced degrees.
Social work is a profession of people helping people in a variety of situations and circumstances. Specifically, social work is a professional activity that seeks to enhance the social functioning of individuals, families, groups, organizations and communities.
Social workers also develop policies and services that promote social, economic and environmental justice by advocating with and on behalf of populations at risk. Social work offers a variety of career opportunities for working with people and helping them meet their needs.
The virtual classroom is the online version of the on campus Social Work program. Students receive individual attention from instructors, interact with other students, and are part of the IWU community of learners. Through the use of various media, students are able to learn from real world Social Work scenarios and case studies.
Our program has been accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) for over 25 years; www.cswe.org, 703-683-8080.
Indiana Wesleyan University is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission (HLC) and is a member of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, www.ncahlc.org; 312-263-0456.
