About US

Dr. Francis A. Taylor, PhD (1980-2006), the second Department Chair of Social Work, implemented the social work minor on August 23, 2006, at Tuskegee University College of Arts and Sciences Department of Social Work. A social work minor is for undergraduates who are interested in learning about the social work field and values but do not want to pursue a BSW degree. The minor will help those from other disciplines of study work more effectively with social work professionals and will give you an introductory understanding of vulnerable populations and the skills and knowledge to work with them. Uniquely, the minor consists of a service-learning component to obtain hands-on experience about a social work practice topic. In addition, it uses simulations as part of the curriculum for students to apply theoretical concepts learned into practice with a virtual human. It’s a great complement to majors such as nursing, health sciences, pre-law/political science, veterinary medicine, performing arts, ROTC, biology, communications, sociology, psychology, and education that may have careers that involve helping people. For those in other majors such as chemistry, business, agricultural and nutrition sciences, learning more about social welfare, social justice, and populations can expand your understanding of the world and how to interact in it.

In addition, students can take advantage of our ongoing partnerships with various graduate schools for advance standing mSW programs with scholarship opportunities for tuskegee students only. also, there are professional development and licensure exam preparation courses available to students through the Department’s courses, and for professional learners through the Continuing education academy (Cea).
