MESSAGE FROM THE DEAN
Welcome to our School of Social Work website. We are happy to share information about our BSW and MSW programs with you. The School of Social Work at Southern University at New Orleans is located in a culturally diverse city which serves as an incubator for our students. Through various community activities, our students can operationalize the themes of our program…advocacy, empowerment and transformation.
This environment allows our students to become active participants in strengthening the residents, communities, and organizations of our great city and surrounding parishes. Our programs prepare our students to recognize and address the inequities in social justice and human rights for all but more importantly for persons who are disenfranchised.
With all the domestic and international environmental and societal concerns that permeate our local and global society, it is a wonderful and rewarding time to become a social worker. Our faculty represents a cross section of experiences and training and willingly brings to the classroom their experiences in and knowledge of research, community empowerment, health care, mental health and evidence based interventions with children, families, youth and the elderly. We encourage you to link to our faculty and contact them.
Our website provides pertinent information and forms for current students to help them successfully matriculate in our programs. We are continuously updating our website with news and event notifications. Our rigorous academic programs are known throughout this region. Both our BSW and MSW students are actively recruited upon graduation. You also will locate relevant information for potential students, including our MSW application, our BSW & MSW course descriptions, our educational philosophy and student activities.
Please take time to know us. Our faculty, staff, students and administrators are eager to respond to your inquiries.
