Social Work

At the University of Maine School of Social Work, we prepare proficient and ethical social work professionals committed to social change in a variety of organizations, specializations, and professional roles.

We provide the highest quality education for both beginning and advanced professional social work practice. We educate at the Baccalaureate and Master’s level in an atmosphere of individualized learning, respect for individual rights, and a celebration of diversity.

Our students have done incredible things. Abby Irvine turned her passion of helping other people into giving each patient being treated for narcotic abuse at Northern Light Acadia Hospital a handwritten note with a positive affirmation. Tyler-Ann Harris had the chance this summer to work with the International Rescue Committee in Sacramento, California as a Volunteer Coordination and In-Kind Donation Intern.
