UIndy's Social Work family

When you become a student in UIndy's Social Work Department, you'll do more than just take classes and complete projects. You'll become part of a caring family, with experienced faculty members dedicated to helping you develop the skills you need to be a successful social worker and getting you off to a good start in your career.

Partners in all areas of Social Work

UIndy's Social Work Department works with more than 40 diverse organizations around the area to offer fieldwork experiences for our students. Social Work majors are required to complete two practica (similar to internships) during their junior and senior years. Whether your interest is in working with children, senior citizens, or somewhere in between, we likely have a partner organization that will give you the experience you need for a career in the highly diverse social work field.
