Grounded in the principles of dignity and respect for all persons, we prepare clinical social workers for reflective practice, supervision, leadership and practice-focused research with a commitment to critical inquiry, cultural responsiveness and social justice.

School of Social Work

The School of Social Work is a collaboration between St. Catherine University and the University of St. Thomas.  Our nationally-ranked MSW program is focused on clinical social work practice.  Our DSW program is focused on education as practice, preparing graduates to teach and lead in higher education.

Drawing from the Judeo-Christian traditions of social caring, we prepare students to use social work knowledge, values and skills to demonstrate the intrinsic value of all humankind as they serve those in need and promote social justice and human rights.
