Mission Statement

The purpose of the Texas A&M University-Texarkana Master of Social Work program is to educate students to address regional problems such as poverty, inequality, and trauma, and to promote community health and wellbeing at the micro, mezzo, and macro levels.  The program is designed to accomplish this by creating and maintaining a strong link between the university and the community through field partnerships, service, and research. Students will graduate as competent social workers who are job ready and prepared for the challenges they will encounter as they help strengthen the community and advance opportunities for all of its citizens.

Program Goals

The TAMUT MSW program has developed the following program goals:

  1. Prepare students to be social work professionals who can intervene with individuals, groups, communities, organizations, and society.
  2. Prepare students to promote racial and social justice within micro, mezzo, and macro contexts.
  3. Enhance students’ classroom learning through experiential and service learning to prepare them to make an impact in their field work and beyond.
  4. Engage with the community and work in partnership to address local and regional concerns with evidence-based interventions.
  5. Educate students in the importance of the person-in-the-environment and ecological frameworks and how they give context to providing trauma-informed care.
