About UM-Flint Social Work

The social work program was first started at the University of Michigan-Flint in the Fall of 1973 with a course taught by a single faculty member with a dual appointment in social work and criminal justice. Since these humble beginnings, the UM-Flint Social Work Program has grown to become a premier CSWE accredited BSW program that has trained hundreds of social workers, many who continue to work in the Flint community.

Situated in the heart of east-central Michigan, the UM-Flint Social Work program provides students with unique community engagement opportunities that cross between metropolitan and rural areas. Our program prepares students for professional generalist practice, to register for the state licensure exam, and/or for advanced standing in graduate studies.

Social Work You Are IN!

In order to promote an inclusive culture, once you declare social work as a major there is no secondary admission process. The program follows a developmental model of learning that emphasizes student strengths and professional development.
