Department of Social Work

The mission of Howard Payne University’s Department of Social Work is to prepare students in a Christian context for careers as social workers dealing with the fallout of evil in the world. This is achieved through the integration of Christ-centered care for the vulnerable and oppressed, and the concrete tools available in higher education, such as classroom lectures, volunteering and internship opportunities.
