5 Recent Alumnus

Academics: Being a social work major has been such a blessing in my life. I am constantly surround by compassionate people. The workload is perfect and the curriculum is excellent. The best part of this program is that we are required to complete an internship before graduation. This requirement allows us to get a taste of what we could be doing for the rest of our lives. It gives you great experience and creates a wonderful opportunity to see if that is what you want to be doing for the rest of your life.
