Social Work

Welcome to the Department of Social Work at The University of Texas at San Antonio!

The Department of Social Work hosts top-tier researchers and educators focused on empowering our students to be transformative culturally competent social workers. Our accredited program offers a Master in Social Work degree for part-time or full-time students. We offer primarily evening classes, with some day classes, to provide options for students with a variety of schedules.

Our program vision: Serve as catalysts for transformative culturally competent social work.

Our program mission: Educate transformative culturally competent social workers.

We are proud of our community partnerships in San Antonio and beyond, which create a wide range of possibilities for student practicum experiences. In addition to engaging with the community, students engage with dedicated faculty and with one another through campus organizations. On the state licensing exam, students and alumni from our program have a passing rate that is significantly higher than the national passage rate. Our alumni are transforming lives and organizations in San Antonio and across the country.

The Department of Social Work is housed under the College of Public Policy, located on the UTSA Downtown Campus. Our main office is located in the Frio Street Building, room 4.544.
