Curriculum

New and emerging challenges in the 21st century demand a different kind of social worker. 

The USC Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work curriculum is designed to produce highly-skilled social workers that are fully prepared to find solutions that will address the pressing issues of today... and be proactive in problem-solving for tomorrow. Students need to feel confident when they graduate that they have the knowledge, skills and vision necessary to embark on successful social work careers.

Our courses and training incorporate evidence-based and evidence-informed research and practices, including new findings in future-forward areas such as artificial intelligence and neuroscience that are pushing the envelope in prevention and intervention and providing more interdisciplinary opportunities for social workers.
