The Social Work major at Saint Anselm College is rooted in the Catholic commitment to social justice and the innate worth and potential of all human beings. Social Work is a helping profession aimed to improve society's overall well-being, especially for vulnerable populations.  Grounded in the liberal arts, the Social Work curriculum focuses on the "person-in-environment," social justice, and practice that is strength-based.  

The Social Work curriculum will enable its majors to (1) develop knowledge of society, its institutions, and its structures of inequality; (2) explore the requirements of ethical behavior and social justice; and (3) develop the fundamental skills of Social Work practice in the classroom and through direct community engagement.  

The Social Work majors prepares students for social work in a variety of settings, such as hospitals, non-profit organizations, mental health centers, schools, advocacy agencies, and government offices.  Specific examples include child protective services, school-based social work, faith-based services, domestic violence services, crisis intervention, health and wellness services, and housing services.
