About

What are the consequences of the widening gulf between the wealthy and the poor? What are the needs of crime victims? How can conflict be mediated rather than escalated? As a Jesuit university wrestling with questions such as these, Marquette University  is pleased to offer a major in Social Welfare and justice.

Overview

The Social Welfare major at Marquette University , which blends the expertise of our faculty in social work, sociology, anthropology and criminology, is dedicated to preparing you to be a leader as you work for justice.

Flexibility

You can tailor this major to fit your needs, whether that's preparing for graduate school in areas such as social work, education or law, or for careers in social services, advocacy or public policy.Intern.Make a difference before you graduate. Our social justice and welfare major includes one- and two-semester internships at a wide variety of sites, including the Milwaukee mayor’s office, schools, health services, and programs for domestic abuse victims, immigrants and drug addiction.

Cross train

Combine our social welfare and justice major with psychology if you'd like to go into case management or child welfare. Blend with theology if you want to work in youth ministry. Mix with economics if you'd like to administer a nonprofit organization or go into social entrepreneurship. Or double major with any of the other majors in the department: anthropology, criminology or sociology.
