About the Department

Social work is a profession devoted to helping people function the best they can in their environment. Social workers are people who care about peoplewho want to make a difference. The Social Work Department began in 1974 to serve the needs of Maryland and the neighboring states, and since then it has grown to include the dual-degree program with the University of Maryland Eastern Shore in 1990 and a new Master of Social Work Program launched in 2001. In 2006, the Department expanded to include satellite programs at Cecil College Northeast campus, the Eastern Shore Higher Education Center at Chesapeake College, and the University System of Maryland at Hagerstown and in 2013 to the Southern Maryland Higher Education Center in California, Maryland. All of SU's undergraduate and graduate social work programs are fully accredited by the Council of Social Work Education, a must for earning licensure.
