Student Experience

When you study social work at TCU, learning isn’t limited to the classroom. Put your skills to use on campus and in the field by providing services, coordinating events and experiencing meaningful research first-hand.

As a social work major, you’ll complete a year-long field placement, which provides rich opportunities to gain experience in your area of interest. You can also volunteer or participate in internships with local community organizations to gain additional experience in population-specific settings. Although many students continue on to an advanced standing master of social work program immediately after graduation, your career can greatly benefit from volunteering with community organizations for professional development and networking opportunities.

It feels like home when you walk on campus and when you talk to people. It just feels like this is a good place to be and people are invested in you succeeding.
