General Overview

The Graduate School of Social Welfare was first established as the Graduate School of Unification Policy in 1991. It became the Graduate School of Unification Policy and Social Welfare Policy in 2000, and finally got the current name in 2006. Our school has seven majors whose educational goals are to guide students in acquiring graduate-level clinical, analytical, and organizational skills for effective practice at levels of social intervention: individual, family, program, organization, community, and policy. The program helps students become leaders in the field of social welfare.
