    Department of Social Work and Gerontology

    UN trip

    During the last few years, our department has grown from one program, our BSW program, to a larger education community with a joint MSW degree program with Millersville and a multidisciplinary gerontology minor. Our BSW and MSW programs are fully accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE). All our programs focus on providing quality education to the future leaders of our helping professions.
