About the Baylor University Diana R. Garland School of Social Work

The Diana R. Garland School of Social Work is dedicated to improving lives through a unique approach to social work education that ethically integrates faith and academic excellence. The school understands that social work is about service and justice; it is about the dignity of individuals and the power of relationships; and it is about integrity and competence.

One of the competencies the school helps aspiring social workers develop is the ability to think critically about spirituality and the impact faith can have on the populations in which they work. With this approach, students are also prepared to serve in a wide range of public and private settings, including congregations and faith-based organizations.

Small class sizes allow students in the MSW online program, MSW@Baylor, to form relationships with their peers and renowned faculty who care about their journey beyond graduation. Graduates of the school are prepared to

  • influence the social welfare of individuals, families, and communities worldwide;
  • lead healthy organizations focused on improving lives and promoting social justice;
  • practice culturally responsive social work through service to others;
  • approach social issues and provide solutions from a strengths-based perspective.
