Program Description

Our department brings together the fields of Sociology and Social Work, both of ‎which are concerned with social issues facing our communities and the world.  We ‎aim to educate students to critically analyze our society, the problems we face in ‎our communities, and build interventions to address them.  We combine the two ‎specialties in our department to enrich our students training.  In our sociology ‎courses, students learn about the broader social conditions affecting our ‎communities and lives and the critical theories needed to analyze our social ‎problems. This knowledge from Sociology directly helps students in their ‎interventions in Social Work at the community level.  Through this inter-‎disciplinary approach, we are building links that provide students with a vision of ‎how a community looks and how they can intervene. ‎

Our department emphasizes practical field experience.  As part of their training, ‎students are required to work 850 hours in the field with different community ‎organizations.

Through this process, students make the links between theory and ‎practice, so that they understand what social workers do in the field, and how this ‎is reflected in theory. We also encourage our students to do research and publish ‎with the guidance of our faculty.‎
