Social Work at Providence College

Why Study Social Work at Providence College?
Our nationally accredited program offers a distinctly personal touch, with small class sizes, collaborative research, and individualized advising by the same faculty member throughout the program. Our program is grounded in the mission of Providence College — scholarship, service, respect for the dignity of all people, and responsible citizenship within our society and in the global community.

A Nationally Accredited Program Designed for Success and Social Impact
The social work profession has always been — and remains — deeply committed to addressing the most pressing issues facing our society, such as structural racism, social justice, and economic inequality. In addition to our historic focus, we recognize the need to address emerging issues such as climate change, migration, and the digital divide. For more than 40 years, the Department of Social Work has prepared graduates for careers that offer personal success and fulfillment while making a positive impact in the lives of others. The hallmark of our program is the ability of our graduates to not only “do well” in reaching their professional goals but to “do good” for others and to better the world around them.
