17:26 EDT 19th March 2019 | BioPortfolio

The University of Southern California's School of Social Work (www.usc.edu/socialwork) ranks among the nation's top 10 social work graduate programs (U.S. News & World Report), with the oldest social work master's and Ph.D. programs in the West. A recognized leader in academic innovation, experiential learning, online education and translational research, the school prepares students for leadership roles in public and private organizations that serve individuals, families and communities in need. This is the only program in the nation offering a military social work curriculum track to prepare social workers to meet the needs of veterans and their families, supported by more than $14 million in appropriations from the U.S. Department of Defense. The school is also a campus exemplar for its research efforts, with funding exceeding $35 million. Our own research institute, the Hamovitch Center for Science in the Human Services, was the first endowed center for interdisciplinary social work research and remains a pioneer in translational science - the acceleration of research findings into practice settings.
