As the top-ranked Catholic school of social work in the nation, the National Catholic School of Social Service educates undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral degree candidates in applying the justice and mercy of Catholic Social Doctrine for the betterment of lives across the nation and the world.
In addition to courses in social welfare, human behavior, multiculturalism, and more, Catholic University students learn to be advocates for political change and agents for the corporal works of mercy. Established in 1918, the National Catholic School of Social Service is founded on a rich, unflinching history of the pursuit of social justice for all.
The National Catholic School of Social Service (NCSSS) offers one undergraduate and two graduate degree programs:
- The Bachelor of Social Work (B.S.W.) program prepares students for a rewarding career in generalist social work practice.
- The Master of Social Work (M.S.W.) program provides students with the knowledge and skill to become advanced social work practitioners.
- The Ph.D. in Social Work prepares social work professionals for research, teaching, and leadership.
In partnership with the Columbus School of Law, NCSSS and the law school offer a dual degree program in which students may obtain both a Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree and a Master of Social Work (M.S.W.) degree.
