A tradition of excellence.


Since 1974, Briar Cliff’s Social Work Program has been accredited by the Council on Social Work Education. For 40 years, our social work graduates have been recognized for their skill and commitment to serving as agents of social change.

Be a name, not a number.

Our social work faculty are experienced, well-respected and published in the field. But most importantly, they're passionate about making you an agent of change. In our program, you'll work directly with caring instructors in weekly personal mentoring, assessments and course advising.

Prefer face-to-face classes?

If you think you're better suited for a face-to-face learning format, Briar Cliff also offers an on-campus social work undergraduate major.
