The Crown Family School of Social Work, Policy, and Practice

For more than 100 years, the University of Chicago Crown Family School of Social Work, Policy, and Practice has defined the fields of social work and social welfare. Today, the Crown Family School is one of the top ranked graduate schools of social work in the world. Our remarkably diverse students arrive with energy, empathy, intelligence, and a keen desire to serve. We give them the firm theoretical foundation, the clinical and policy perspective, and the hands-on experience to make a meaningful impact in the lives of the most vulnerable people in our society.

The Crown Family School offers two Master's Degree Programs: Social Work, Social Policy, and Social Administration (SW) and Social Sector Leadership and Nonprofit Management (SSL). Both offer an integrated approach that prepare you to be a force of positive change in people's lives, but each program is distinctive. The SW Program is for those who wish to become a social worker and want to focus on change at multiple levels: individuals, families, communities, and agencies. You can concentrate on either clinical social work, or social administration, but in both you'll gain a clear vision of the interconnectedness of policy and the lives of marginalized populations. The SSL Program is for individuals with previous experience working in the social sector who are seeking to advance into positions of agency leadership such as program managers, directors, and executives.
