Social work is a unique profession: rich with meaning, action, and the power to make a positive difference in the world. Social workers are devoted to helping individuals, groups, and families in dealing with a variety of challenges such as abuse, addiction, discrimination, poverty, and more. If this is something that speaks to you, we encourage you to explore the academic programs we offer as well as the research being done by our faculty.
College of Social Work at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville has a special mission to serve the needs of the state for advanced social work education. The College provides professional social work education programs that prepare undergraduate and graduate students for social work practice and doctoral level graduate students for social work leadership, research, and academia.
