welcome to the
school of social work
Social work has the power to alleviate poverty and oppression among individuals, families and entire communities. We can help you make a difference in the world through our dedication to excellence in teaching, research and community service. At SFA, you can become a social worker at the generalist (Bachelor of Social Work) or advanced generalist level (Master of Social Work). Once you graduate, rewarding career opportunities can be found in both state and private agencies.
SFA and Lone Star College formed a partnership to offer social work courses leading to a Bachelor of Social Work and a Masters of Social Work degrees at LSC-University Center at The Woodlands. SFA and Tyler Junior College formed a similar partnership designed to make social work education available to students in the Tyler area.
At SFA, we believe students benefit greatly from hands-on learning in and out of the classroom. Transformative experiences are at the core of our academic philosophy.
