Our alumni promote human well-being among individuals, families, and communities
Department of Social Work
The Department of Social Work at George Mason University for more than 40 years has prepared students to focus on improving the well-being of individuals, families, and community; advocate for social justice; and develop programs and policies that address unemployment, poverty, and discrimination. As a CSWE-accredited program, the department focuses on assessing, planning, implementing, and evaluating programs at all levels (from the individual to the community) to affect social change. Located just 15 miles from the nation’s capital, we are in an ideal region to directly impact social change on the local and national level. Our alumni improve well-being and create meaningful government policies that transform lives.
