There aren’t many schools in which social work is such a core part of its identity. At Wheelock, the college’s mission and motto – ” to improve the lives of children and families”- is a very familiar mission for social workers. Unsurprisingly, social work is one of our most popular majors. Besides our MSW in Social Work, we also have several social work graduate certificate programs.
March is Social Work Month. The month is set aside to celebrate the invaluable and compassionate work that social workers do to make a positive difference in the lives of individuals and families. In recognition, I’ve compiled a list of some of our Library’s recent books related to social work:
