In the Marist Social Work degree, we place a great deal of emphasis on service-learning, which brings together faculty, students, and community organizations in order to link learning goals with civic responsibility and community empowerment. As a part of the curriculum, students are engaged in either a consciousness-raising project on campus or work with a community organization to address a social need.
Students have worked to stomp out stigma against mental health illness, increase equity for the LGBTQ community, raise awareness about sexual assault and harassment on campus, and push for fossil fuel divestment on campus. Hasion Gaston '20, featured below, created a series of social-emotional workshops for local youth during his Tarver Internship. He facilitated eight seminars ranging from value trees to personal reflections on leadership to vision boards.
Student Learning Outcomes
The Social Work program from Marist College is designed to prepare students for competent social work practice as defined by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) Educational Policy Accreditation Standards (EPAS). The goal of competency-based education is to assure that students can successfully integrate and apply the competencies in practice with individuals, families, groups, organizations, and communities. The core competencies are further explained as a Social Work Program Competency (SWPC).

- SWPC 1: Demonstrate Ethical and Professional Behavior
- SWPC 2: Engage Diversity and Difference in Practice
- SWPC 3: Advance Human Rights and Social, Economic, and Environmental Justice
