Social Work Department

Social work focuses on helping others. This includes working with individuals, families, groups, organizations, and communities to achieve life-enhancing goals. Born out of an increased sense of social responsibility toward vulnerable populations, social work continues to be concerned with the advancement of economic and social justice. What makes the field unique is its dual focus on helping people and changing environments.

The social work program at Regis College is grounded in the belief that experience and hands-on learning are essential for developing social work skills. Experiential learning takes place in the classroom and in service learning projects, internships, and field placements.

Our social work program is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education, and social work students graduate with a BSW degree. Graduates are eligible for social work licensing, and those who go on to graduate schools in social work are admitted with advanced standing.

Recent field placements include:

  • Boston Medical Center
  • Department of Social Services
  • Brandon School
  • St. Mary's Women and Infants Center
  • Elliott Community Human Services
  • Dare Family Services
  • South Middlesex Opportunity Council
  • Cambridge/Somerville Elder Services
  • AIDS Action Committee
  • Sandra's Lodge
  • Voices Against Violence


Finally, we have a cross-registration agreement with the Boston College Graduate School of Social Work that allows promising social work students at Regis to take graduate social work courses at Boston College in their junior and senior years.
