University of Connecticut

School of Social Work


The School of Social Work offers a Ph.D. degree and a large MSW program with an unusually full and rich array of specializations in the field of social work. Graduates play major roles in planning, administering, and providing social and mental health services in Connecticut, the region, and beyond. Research and curriculum strengths include international social work and human rights; mental health, trauma, and violence prevention and reduction; social and health disparities; diversity and cultural competence; and policy analysis and advocacy. Faculty excel in engaged scholarship, and almost all are involved in extensive community service. A growing number of collaborations within the University, including the School of Law, UConn Health, and the human rights programs, will enhance scholarship and service.
