The Social Work program is nationally accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE).

The School of Arts and Sciences also plays an integral role in providing Northwestern’s General Education program, the heart of any liberal arts education. As part of their general education experience, students take courses from most or all of the departments within the school. In this way the School directly supports the University’s General Education mission of providing a foundation for all degree programs and offering opportunities for students to develop competencies in critical thinking, leadership, and literacy.
