View Profile

As a department of Social Work and Social Administration, we pride ourselves in being a significantly vibrant and popular department in the University. We are committed to upholding the value of quality thereby producing well-enlightened and influential professionals in the society equipped with good comprehension of society and humanity to ably transform our world for the better.

Social work is a practice-based profession and an academic discipline that promotes social change and development, social cohesion, and the empowerment and liberation of people. It looks at the principles of social justice, human rights, collective responsibility and respect for diversities as central components of social work. Social work as an interdisciplinary field includes theories from economics, education, sociology, medicine, philosophy, politics, anthropology and psychology among others.

Our students are exposed to fieldwork practice in human services which refers to a supervised internship at an approved community- based agency; this helps students to acquire hands on experience (get the opportunity to put the theory learnt in class into practice).  Students may find placements in a variety of human service settings which include education, health care, community agency, social welfare, mental health, non-governmental agency services and local government administration. The Department is endowed with highly qualified teaching staff and our curriculum is approved by the Uganda National Council for Higher Education (NCHE).
