Social Work

Real World Action

Sarah Janes, Class of 2015, Senior Poster

Our seniors do 440 hours of Practicum work. In the Spring Semester, they design and implement an intervention for the clients at their practicum site. They present their plan and findings during Senior Colloquium. Social Work students are well prepared for field work. All of our students are employed or volunteering after graduation.

Social Work

Work with and on behalf of marginalized populations.

Our Social Work Program trains students to be professionals in the field and live out the Jesuit mission in action every day. Social Workers embody what it means to be a person for and with others, find God in all people and things, and strive for Magis.

The social work profession has its own body of knowledge, code of ethics, practice standards, credentials, state certification, and accreditation of education programs. Creighton University's Social Work Program has been accredited by the Council on Social Work Education since 1991.

Accreditation makes it possible for social work graduates to qualify for state certification and/or licensing in states where credentialing is mandated and to enter advanced standing graduate social work programs.
