What is Social Work at WVU like?

Our curriculum prepares you for positions in the social work profession. We train students to work effectively with individuals, families, groups, communities and organizations around the country.
Social workers are advocates for social change. A victim of an assault benefits not only from therapy, but also from efforts to curb neighborhood crime. The client who is under stress because illness has devastated the family finances benefits from efforts to reform the nation’s healthcare system. Social work is more than working with people on welfare. Social workers serve their communities in powerful ways that lead to lasting changes.
