Department of Social Work

The Department of Social Work has been serving communities in Pueblo area since the 1960s and has been nationally accredited by the Council on Social Work Education since 1982. 

The Department has a primary mission of preparing students to see that they are part of the change system in the social work profession. Students are consistently given the message that weaknesses are seen as areas for further growth. To know thyself is instrumental in knowing others.

The Department of Social Works encourages students to obtain the degree at various starting points depending on experience. We offer several entry pathways and learning formats. You can complete courses entirely online or in a hybrid format with on-campus instruction.

We provide our students with extensive opportunities to assess their motivation for a career in social work and their aptitude for the profession in both academic and field practicum areas.

Our graduates are highly regarded by the social service community and are sought to fill social work staffing needs in the surrounding urban and rural communities in this region. Many graduates from this program are administrators and practitioners in social service agencies throughout southern Colorado.
