EDUCATION * RESEARCH * SERVICE

Social work practice in the U.S. is informed by international issues. The School of Social Work offers opportunities for study, research and service in other countries, in collaboration with other UGA units such as the Center for Global Health, as well as universities and organizations outside the United States. Students may participate in the School's long-established programs in Ghana and Northern Ireland, or may independently participate in approved international programs for course credit.

In addition, many of our faculty pursue projects outside the U.S., and encourage the development of international partnerships and practicum sites. 

On campus, the Students for Global Social Work also enthusiastically promotes the international dimensions of social work through a variety of activities.

For more information about opportunities in global learning, research or service, contact Jane McPherson, director of Global Engagement, at (706) 542-3938 or jmcpherson@uga.edu. For information about opportunities offered elsewhere at UGA, contact the UGA Office of International Education
