Our mission is to serve as a student and community resource, providing holistic Postgraduate social work education and the vision is to speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves. The department provides a sound foundation in social work, its theoretical frameworks and perspectives. Our objective is to equip social workers with generalist knowledge, values, and skills and to prepare competent professionals for entry level social work practice with diverse systems within a global context. We prepare ourselves to assist with students’ development of understanding and integration of social work theories and practice. The systematic guidance would allow students to demonstrate an understanding of social work concepts and the planned changed process. We help our students to develop an understanding of working with people of diversity; including age, race, ethnicity, religion, and sexual orientation without discrimination and thus provides students an opportunity to demonstrate an understanding of a bio-psycho-social assessment.
