The mission of the USC Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work is to promote social justice and well-being at every social level through advanced education, community engagement, interdisciplinary scientific activity, advocacy, and professional leadership.
The school advances its mission through its three academic centers, each of which reflects all of the components of the school's rich learning environment, with opportunities for value-driven education, student and faculty scholarship, and opportunities for alumni to engage in lifelong learning. Faculty engage in empirical research, innovation and community service, engage our students in scholarly projects, and produce publications, conferences and presentations that focus on needs of vulnerable individuals and communities facing complex challenges in diverse environments.
Established in 1984, the USC Orange County Academic Center offers the first and still one of the only accredited full-time Master of Social Work programs in Orange County. Centrally located near John Wayne Airport in Irvine, the center is convenient for those who live or work in the area and want a USC graduate education without the hassles of traveling far. Reflecting the growing mosaic of ethnicities and social work needs of Southern California, the center attracts a surprisingly diverse student body from Orange, Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Riverside and San Diego counties.
With technology-enhanced classrooms offering full multimedia, videoconferencing and satellite TV broadcasting capabilities, the Orange County Academic Center can readily share the same lectures and learning opportunities in Los Angeles and initiate teleconferences of its own. Students receive a top university education, including forward-looking knowledge in competent and compassionate practice and opportunities to join faculty in rigorous scholarship with advanced technology to support learning – all within an intimate, suburban environment.
