Established in 1946, the The University of Connecticut School of Social Work is a national leader in graduate social work education. We are ranked in the top 20% of schools of social work in one of the top public research universities in the nation. In our School's 70 year history, we have graduated more than 8,400 students. We have a rich tradition of educating and serving diverse populations and more than one-third of our 400 students and 29 faculty members belong to underrepresented groups in higher education.
The School’s research doctorate is the only public social work PhD program in the region. We are the first public university in Connecticut to offer a bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degree in social work. Our areas of distinction include mental health, trauma and violence prevention and reduction; international social work and human rights; social and health disparities; diversity and cultural competence; and policy analysis, advocacy, and community organizing.
The School of Social Work is involved in a growing number of interdisciplinary collaborations within the University, including with the School of Law, UConn Health, and the Human Rights Institute. We also have an extensive collaboration network with public and private human service agencies. Our graduates play major roles in planning, administering, and providing social and mental health services in Connecticut, the region, and beyond.
