Christian Social Work Degree in Ohio that Transforms Communities

Live out your faith in Ohio and beyond with a modern Social Work degree from Malone

Have you always had a drive to help others? With an in-person or online degree in social work, you’ll be encouraged to lean into those natural giftings and transform lives. Blending a strong commitment to put your faith into action with a career that’s often dealing with a hurting and broken world, you can make a huge difference in people’s lives.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, social work jobs are expected to grow 16 percent by 2026 – a rate much faster than average. We offer a rigorous curriculum that gives you the training you need to pass the LSW exam and excel in your career. 

In fact, our social work students collectively have one of the highest passing rates for the required LSW certification in the state of Ohio. Two-thirds of our students go on to graduate school. Because our program is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE), graduates are eligible for advanced standing in many postgraduate degree programs should they choose to continue their education.

You’ll be immersed in a nurturing environment that fosters growth in both your professional skills and your faith journey.

An unparalleled mentorship approach

Unlike many other institutions, our social work faculty aren’t just adjunct educators; they’re licensed social workers devoted to guiding and shaping the next generation of change-makers.

Connections matter in a social work program.

Because of our faculty’s personal drive in the social work program, your education is intended to feel like a mentorship. You’ll be working closely with your professors who are dedicated to ensuring your education is meaningful, comprehensive, and deeply rooted in real-world expertise.
