The Department of Social Work offers the master's in social work (M.S.W.) degree and the baccalaureate degree with a major in social work. The M.S.W. program admitted its first class in 1989.  The M.S.W. program prepares deaf, hard of hearing, and hearing students to assume leadership positions in the provision of social work services for deaf and hard of hearing people throughout the United States and internationally. Graduates are employed in child welfare agencies, schools and universities, mental health settings, family service agencies, correctional facilities, and programs for people with developmental disabilities, among many others. Graduates are providing clinical services and are engaged in advocacy, administration, program and policy development, community development, consultation, research, and publication.  

The Department of Social Work has seven faculty and one professional staff who are highly qualified and experienced in their fields. Department members are engaged in research, are active in community service projects, and present regularly in professional conferences, workshops, and colloquia. Social work faculty are engaged in program development efforts on behalf of deaf and hard of hearing people throughout the metropolitan Washington area. In addition, the department sponsors guest lectures and colloquia by professional social work practitioners from the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area as well as from other areas of the country. 

The master's program is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education. The baccalaureate program in social work has been accredited by the Council on Social Work Education since 1976 and was reaccredited in 1994.
