Social Work


The Social Work Department at Eastern is committed to helping students grow their knowledge and their hands-on experience.

Students who are interested in pursuing a career in helping others can find the programs they need in an environment they want. Students within this department will have the opportunity to learn from professors who are active in their fields and committed to helping students answer their call to social work.

The Social Work Department is part of the faith-based community at Eastern which means students will not only expand their knowledge and gain experience but will also grow their beliefs and expand their compassion.
