Social Work

Ready to transform and renew

The social work program prepares students for community-centered generalist social work practice, but it does so much more as well. Taught from a Christian perspective, the program emphasizes that community well-being is essential to a common good, that each community has gifts and assets, and we are called to participate in the life of a community. Students leave on fire to make a difference in the world.

Social work majors often choose to work in traditional roles as social workers or family support workers. There are numerous other rewarding career opportunities for those who study social work at Trinity Christian College. You could work as a chaplain, a counselor, an arbitrator, a career adviser, a life coach, a youth worker, a community development worker or in myriad other roles.
