Welcome to Social Work

Our graduates provide social work services in a variety of fields of practice including youth and family services, mental health care, health care, criminal and juvenile justice, and services to older adults. The social work values of service, social and economic justice, dignity and worth of the person, importance of human relationships, integrity, and competence in practice serve as our defining principles guiding our application of social work knowledge and skills to client populations.

Message from the Master of Social Work Program Director

Welcome to the TAMUK Clinical/Activist program. The profession of social work is based on the values of service, social and economic justice, dignity and worth of the person, importance of human relationships, and integrity and competence in practice. With these values as defining principles, the primary mission of the social work program is to offer an educational program that will prepare graduates to provide competent Clinical/Activist social work to an ethnically and culturally diverse population with an educational emphasis on social justice and empowerment for people who are vulnerable, oppressed, and living in poverty. The social work program is committed to promoting professional social work practice and values in the development of social work knowledge and responsive social service delivery systems.Dr. Robert Villa
