Department of Social Work

Affiliated with College of Humanities and Applied Information


Introduction

The Department of Social Work, formerly named the Department of Youth and Children’s Welfare, was founded in 1999. Our goal is to train students to assume social responsibility, develop expertise in social work, and display the ethical responsibilities required for the field of social work. In addition, we aim to stimulate our students to develop their full potential for problem solving. In so doing, we hope they will develop a sense of concern for other individuals (especially vulnerable groups), families, and communities and, by extension, dedicate themselves to the welfare and interests of human beings in general, particularly disadvantaged minorities.

Teaching and Learning

We offer a department-based curricular design, collaborating with public sector institutions and non-profit organizations to promote social welfare projects, keep abreast of current social needs, and further technical skills in welfare services. Our aim is for students to develop professional competency in social work, an understanding of ethical requirements for this profession, and a sense of social responsibility.
