Ph.D. in Social Work

Program Overview

The School of Social Work at Loyola University Chicago has a long tradition of educating outstanding professionals for the direct practice of social work. Our doctoral program, established in 1986, continues and extends this tradition by graduating scholars skilled in clinical research, scholarship, and teaching.  The Jesuit ideal of service to others and commitment to social justice guides and nourishes our program as we prepare students for leadership roles in diverse practice and academic arenas. As part of Loyola University Chicago, the School of Social Work is embedded in an urban environment offering diverse opportunities for learning to facilitate evaluation of clinical practice and/or the context in which those services are delivered.
