Social Work @ PLU
Are you interested in working with children with emotional and behavioral issues? Do you believe everyone is entitled to access to health care? Are you frustrated by what you hear about social welfare programs? Are you passionate about speaking for those who have no voice?
The overarching goal of the program is preparation for generalist social work practice with individuals, families, households, groups, communities, and organizations. If you are excited about tackling some of today’s major social challenges and enjoy working with people, then social work may be just the career for you!
The Pacific Lutheran University Department of Social Work is dedicated to educating individuals for social work practice with individuals, families, households, groups, communities and organizations within a generalist framework that is based on a philosophy of social justice, egalitarianism, pluralism, and compassion for the oppressed.
“Educating caring, skillful generalists to be ethical agents for global and local change.”
