Developing the World's Changemakers

Social work students prepare for careers of professional service. Our graduates help people find work, form stable relationships, avoid drugs and alcohol, and cope with physical and mental disabilities. Working in the public, private and non-profit sectors, social-work practitioners pursue social justice for oppressed and marginalized individuals and communities.

If you're called to improve the social conditions of others, then you're ready to take classes in social work, psychology, counseling, biology, sociology, human relations and statistics.

If you're called to serve the social needs of your community, then you're ready to work in health settings, nursing homes, social services programs, family and mental health agencies, schools and correctional systems.

Our Mission
The mission of the Department of Social Work at St. Cloud State University is to use an anti-oppression lens, with a focus on race, class and gender, to inform both its educational environment and educational programs. Faculty, staff and students commit to an experiential and transformative educational process that will challenge them to think critically and analyze systemic inequalities in the United States and the world. This process will prepare professional social workers to work as change agents in a diverse world.
