Student Life

What’s it like to be a graduate student at UNC School of Social Work? Exciting. Challenging. Inspiring. You’ll examine your assumptions on a daily basis. You’ll look for evidence before making any decisions. You’ll collaborate with your peers and your professors to seek new solutions to the “wicked problems” of our world.

As you prepare for your career in social work, we want you to have the best possible experience as a graduate student here. You’ve chosen a wonderful environment to continue your education. The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is a world-class research institution. You’ll find a beautiful campus, 12 libraries, a thriving arts scene, a love for Tar Heel sports, health and wellness resources, plenty of opportunities to involve yourself in activism, and a small-town environment with big-city amenities. We think you’ll love it.

Welcome to Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Welcome to the University. Welcome to our School!
