The program of social work has been introduced to prepare a person as a social work professional by enhancing his commitment to democracy, peace, human rights, peoples empowerment, social justice, and human diversity. As part of the educational experience, the program provides students with opportunities to develop appropriate attitudes, skills and critical perspectives imbued with spirituality in providing services in the public, corporate, non-profit development sectors and civil society.
