About Us

The Tulane University School of Social Work has only one specialized area of practice: Integrative Clinical and Community Practice.

We believe the dichotomy between clinical and community practice is false. While many social workers may start off clinical, they quickly become managers and supervisors who require more of a macro focus. Moreover, the problems that individuals, families, organizations, and communities face nationally and globally are both clinical and macro. Therefore, we believe it is essential to train our students to be conversant in both areas of practice. This course of study is designed to offer the best clinical and community training that addresses the unique needs of individuals, families, groups, organizations, and communities. Team projects, problem-based learning, creative simulation, team teaching, and field work are just some of the enriching experiences students enjoy while fulfilling their degree requirements.
