Learning outcomes

The goals of the Florida Atlantic University School of Social Work are to provide students with a curriculum that will adequately prepare them for beginning generalist social work practice, graduate study in social work, and effective participation in community processes. The content of the social work practice curriculum relates to:

  • Client systems of various sizes and types;
  • The diverse populations of southeast Florida;
  • Societal, community, and agency contexts, and their changing natures, the behavior of organizations, and the dynamics of change;
  • Values and ethics of the social work profession, and;
  • Emphasizing awareness of the responsibility to continue professional growth and development.

Some of our graduates also move onto other fields of professional graduate education such as law, political science, and administration. Our program (accredited by the Council on Social Work Education) is based upon the Generalist Intervention Model, which uses a strength-based approach to working with individuals, families, groups, and communities.
