Founded in 1918/1919, the Boston University School of Social Work is an urban-focused graduate program which prepares and develops highly trained, flexible professional social workers and leaders in an increasingly diverse and complex society. The School's practice-oriented and academically rigorous programs provide the skills required for leadership in a challenging and changing society. Students benefit from a pioneering curriculum that utilizes a broad approach to social and personal problems and teaches the differential use of social work methods.
