A warm welcome to the school of social work at St. Joseph’s University. The social work profession is an integral part of social transformation. Congrats! You are a changemaker. Your choice of Bachelor's, Master's, PG Diploma, and Doctoral program is challenging yet satisfying, its paperwork and 24/7 availability, it is long and tiring but the outcome is precious. As a student of social work, I urge you to come in with your personal experiences of needs, wants, social dysfunction, Injustice, and knowledge of successful social workers, who have transformed society through intellectual, scientific, and action-based approaches. This course will skill you to empower individuals and society and to carry out research to find solutions to social problems. Its powerful tools, theories, and approaches need years of practice to become an expert but your fieldwork exposure in every semester will prepare you to apply theories in the field to be the catalyst of Change. As it is said, “We lose ourselves in the service of others, we discover our own lives and our own happiness.” Let this be the motto of our school, let us lose ourselves in the service of others through intellectual social work propagating equality, justice, and human rights. Let no one be left behind because we are one family of brothers and sisters. Warm welcome social workers, let the journey towards a new world order begin...
