K-State Salina’s social work program is designed for individuals determined to become professionals to help others navigate relationships; solve personal, family and community challenges; and learn to shape social and environmental forces affecting daily life.
Social work is a profession for those with a spark of idealism, a belief in social justice, and a natural love of working with people. Social work offers the chance to work with and for people regardless of socioeconomic status, race, age or gender in hospitals, at home, or at work.
K-State Salina’s social work program offers an intimate class size and inter-professional collaborative training with a final semester field practicum. Students will emerge prepared to practice in the most diverse environments, from urban to small communities and rural areas. The program is nationally accredited by the Commission of accreditation of the Council on Social Work Education.
