Social Work


Do you want to work with troubled children? Do you want to accomplish more with your career than just put in the time until you retire? Do you want the opportunity to help people who really need your help? If you do, the UWF Department of Social Work wants you and will give you the opportunity to make a difference.

March is Social Work Month

Join the Department of Social Work, former classmates and faculty for a networking reception! This is your opportunity to connect with the social work community. The reception will take place on Friday, March 10, 2023 at 4:30 p.m. in the UWF Conference Center (Building 22). Heavy hors d'oeuvres and two drink tickets will be provided.

RSVP for the Reception

The alumni networking reception immediately follows a luncheon, awards ceremony and workshop event co-hosted by the National Association of Social Workers Florida Chapter Northwest Unit and the UWF Department of Social Work. For more information on this NASW event and to register, visit the NASW Northwest Unit's website.

You do not need to attend the event to come to the alumni reception!

Why Should You Choose Social Work?

Today’s social workers are highly trained professionals equipped with the tools to work with children and families, mental health clients, substance abusers, in hospitals and hospice services, and many more. With a graduate degree and additional clinical experience you can even establish a private practice and bill insurance companies for your services. Did you know that social workers provide the majority of mental health services in America?

Here at the University of West Florida we take great pride in our students and the preparation they receive to do great work in the community. If you want to join the profession that reaches out and raises hope for those in need, we welcome you to the path that will lead to a career in Social Work.
