Creating Solutions Out of Challenges

Social workers help individuals, families, groups and communities improve their quality of life. With our focus on the "person-in-environment" paradigm, our program uniquely prepares you to make a meaningful difference in the lives of those who are vulnerable, oppressed or living in poverty. 


 The Social Work Program at Auburn University is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education’s Board of Accreditation. Accreditation of a baccalaureate or master’s social work program by the Council on Social Work Education’s Board of Accreditation indicates that it meets or exceeds criteria for the assessment of program quality evaluated through a peer review process. An accredited program has sufficient resources to meet its mission and goals and the Board of Accreditation has verified that it demonstrates compliance with all sections of the Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards.
