Imagine a place where people live their values and actively work to solve social problems they are passionate about. Welcome to the UB School of Social Work.
Our students are part of a close-knit collaborative community. They tackle challenging ideas in the classroom with the help of our experienced and diverse faculty, and get involved in the community through field placements, volunteer opportunities and research. All students benefit from our curriculum's unique trauma-informed and human rights perspectives, and with a variety of options for advanced year courses, students are able to focus on the topics and populations they care about most.
