Social work teaches students the basic skills of working with people and provides them the opportunity to serve God in so many different occupations, like working with children, law enforcement, non-profit organizations, rehabilitation centers, etc.

Trevecca Nazarene University's Social Work Program has been officially accepted into candidacy for accreditation by the Council on Social Work Education.

What our students say

"The Social Work Department at Trevecca has been a wonderful influence in my life thus far. The professors are very helpful and encouraging. They care deeply about their students, and they work individually helping them develop their varying interests in the field. They strive to help their students discover their strengths, and ways to capitalize on them so that they are beneficial to their future career. Thanks to the professors in the social work program, I already feel excited and prepared to go out into the world, and shine a light for Christ in the wonderful helping profession of social work."

"The staff in the Social Work program is always there to support you; the classes prepare you for a job after graduation and the practicum opportunities are wonderful. I have been told countless times by my practicum supervisors that Trevecca Social Work students are the most advanced and hardest workers that they have had placed at their facilities.

I know coming out of Trevecca that I will be prepared for what the future holds and I am so thankful for everything the Social Work program has done for me."
