People looking for a career with meaning, action, diversity, satisfaction, and an abundance of options are often drawn to social work. Social workers are highly trained professionals who care about people, who want to make things better, who want to relieve suffering, who want their work to make a difference.

The Social Work Program at The College of New Rochelle, offering a Bachelor of Science degree in Social Work, is fully accredited by the Council on Social Work Education and approved by the New York State Department of Education as a baccalaureate-level social work education program.

Courses emphasize direct services with individuals, families, small groups, organizations, and communities, and enable students to understand how social welfare services are organized and develop the skills to assist clients in obtaining the services they need.

The Social Work curriculum is built upon the liberal arts perspective of the School of Arts & Sciences, which emphasizes learning and ways of thinking about people within a societal context, enriches the student’s understanding of the person-in-environment focus of social work practice, and provides the foundation for the Social Work major.
