Become a Leader for Social Change
Tulane University’s School of Social Work has a century-long legacy of training social workers and empowering leaders to serve in diverse communities in New Orleans. In an effort to maximize the impact within Louisiana and beyond, Tulane established the online Doctorate in Social Work to help practitioners seeking a path toward leadership have the opportunity to continue their education and goal of creating a more equitable world. Students prepare for executive-level positions through a curriculum developed to foster the critical thinking skills that are necessary to design, evaluate and implement effective programs and policies. The DSW program is unique because students learn from faculty and peers who have firsthand knowledge of living and learning with the people and communities in the resilient city of New Orleans. While maintaining their current professional and personal responsibilities, students can continue to learn and study in a learning environment that is flexible, adaptable, and individually focused.
