The Department of Social Work

Social workers help people from all walks of life with all kinds of problems in all kinds of settings. They use their deep understanding of human development and behavior, as well as how people interact with social, economic and cultural institutions, along with specialized skills, to help individuals, families, or communities in need.

"Social workers help people overcome some of life's most difficult challenges: poverty, discrimination, abuse, addiction, physical illness, divorce, loss, unemployment, educational problems, disability, and mental illness. They help prevent crises and counsel individuals, families, and communities to cope more effectively with the stresses of everyday life." - National Association of Social Workers

Social work is one of the fastest growing careers in the United States, and the demand for trained social workers increases every year. A social work degree from FHSU will prepare you for a rewarding career helping those who need it most.

Social Work at FHSU: Forward thinking. World ready.

When you study social work at FHSU, you'll develop skills and knowledge that will enable you to help others. Additionally, because you'll gain such a deep understanding of people and the systems in which they live (social, economic, cultural, etc.), you'll not only be prepared for a rewarding, in demand career, but your life will also be enriched, knowing that you're helping the most vulnerable people.

We offer a practice-oriented, traditional undergraduate degree, at our Hays campus and through our cohort programs in Garden City, Dodge City, and Liberal.  You'll study with expert faculty who incorporate their experiences and active research agendas into the classroom, letting you experience how social work knowledge applies to real world challenges.

We have significant resources for students, including student organizations and research support. You'll have enriching hands-on experiences through clinical, service and internship opportunities, giving you a leg up on the competition upon graduation, and preparing you to take on a variety of rewarding careers.
