The Social Work program of Capital University serves traditional and non-traditional undergraduates. Its curriculum is built around the principle that social work education flows from a common core of values and knowledge through which we practice. We bring into the profession graduates who make responsible decisions and value choices in a rapidly changing society.
What you'll learn
As a social work major at Capital, you'll be part of a program committed to social change, diversity and exemplary practice in any setting — rural or urban, large or small. You'll also be prepared for technology-enhanced practice and international social welfare.
In our classrooms, learning is an active process, where students and professors are highly engaged in an exchange of knowledge and experience. Our faculty members use high-impact teaching and learning practices, like undergraduate research, internships, field experiences and capstone projects, proven to have the highest impact on learning.
We use a liberal arts core curriculum to educate broadly, build your knowledge and expand your world view. We also educate you specifically to refine your skills and talent in your chosen field. And we prepare you to navigate complexity, diversity and change.
Where you'll go: careers and placement
Our social work graduates find jobs soon after graduation — sometimes at the agency where their field placement occurred. As a graduate, you'll be prepared for work in various places, including mental health clinics, public welfare agencies, courts, correctional institutions, child and family services, the Peace Corps, schools, hospitals and vocational and rehabilitation centers.
