Welcome to the Anne and Henry Zarrow School of Social Work! We are glad you have landed here and encourage you to explore our undergraduate and graduate programs both accredited by CSWE, our first rate faculty, our exciting centers and programs, upcoming events, and student/alumni news. We offer many continuing education events in Norman, Tulsa, and Northwestern Oklahoma for social workers across the state.
If you are an alumni of the school looking for ways to reconnect with the school please check out our calendar of events, our Board of Visitors, and the spotlight series that highlights the interesting work of faculty, students and alumni. I am certain that you will be impressed and excited about the work of the school and our progress moving forward. We also encourage you to take advantage of our various social media outlets including Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. Looking for a job? We post all job announcements we receive here and on Facebook. You can provide us with your contact information so that we can include you in our special events.
Prospective students can find out more about our undergraduate and graduate programs by exploring the website, reading about our faculty and exploring our centers. You can learn more about graduates of our programs by reviewing our spotlight series and request to talk to someone about the programs, the admission process and more! You can consider why OU is an affordable and first rate option for considering your social work educational needs. Current students can find information that will help them navigate their degree programs. The policies and procedures page contains all of the relevant policies and helpful information for current students and the very popular practicum page contains everything you need related to practicum.
Our facilities on both campus sites support innovations in instruction, community gatherings, simulation, continuing professional education, and interdisciplinary collaboration. Reflecting the confidence of the university and the donor is the endowment of the school as the Anne and Henry Zarrow School of Social Work. Anne and Henry Zarrow who together have directed their wealth to advance human well-being within the state of Oklahoma endowed the school as a living capacity for carrying on their deep commitment to social betterment.
An excellent curriculum, educational innovations, certificate programs and a strong commitment to social work education by our faculty are hallmarks of the school. Our faculty are engaged in research that adds to the vibrant academic environment of the school. The faculty publishes across the spectrum of social work practice and research journals as well as in the journals of other disciplines and interdisciplinary venues. Through their research and dissemination activities, faculty members are addressing the social issues faced by vulnerable populations in our state.
Thanks for taking the time to visit our site and come back again!
