Social workers are agents of change. As professionals, they work to empower the human capacity to solve complex problems and improve the human condition.
SUNY Buffalo State's Social Work Department offers a bachelor of science in social work that educates graduates in a field that the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics has indicated will grow 25% faster than the average for all occupations through 2020. Graduates of the social work program are qualified to obtain rewarding jobs or apply to advanced graduate programs.
Our program has been accredited by the Council on Social Work Education since 1975, and is unique in that it combines relevant academic preparation with hands-on practical experience.
