Experience

Social work at South Carolina means more than classroom study, books and labs. Here you experience the world firsthand and turn your experiences into a lifetime of service. 

At the College of Social Work, you will not just learn about social change. You will be part of it. Through service learning woven into our undergraduate and graduate courses, practice experiences and participation in student organizations, you will step into your professional life well prepared to make a difference to people and communities across the Palmetto state and beyond.

You might see the struggles of addiction firsthand at Alcoholics Anonymous meetings or put a face on modern poverty by coordinating client intake at the Harvest Hope Food Bank. Whether you are interested in serving children and families or working in health care, our curriculum and practice experiences give you a front-row seat to how social workers can lead change that improves lives.
