School of Social Work

UB's social work graduate and undergraduate students expand their social awareness and prepare for a career positively impacting individuals, social systems and policy. Our program teaches evidence-based practice with a trauma-informed and human rights perspective. Our students make real-world impacts by engaging in active research through our Buffalo Center for Social Research. These are a few reasons why UB School of Social Work is ranked in the top 10 percent of U.S. schools of social work.
