Motivated by the love and justice of Jesus Christ, graduates of Cairn’s social work programs intervene in the lives of those in need—counseling individuals, locating resources, facilitating groups, and promoting change within organizations and communities. The world needs spiritually and professionally qualified individuals, characterized by grace and compassion, who provide competent interventions that change lives. For students interested in helping others, Cairn’s social work programs are essential preparation for both graduate study and employment in social services. Historically rooted in Christianity, social work pursues the well-being of individuals, families, groups, and communities. Determined through a relationship with those served, interventions include counseling, resource acquisition, policy development, community organization, advocacy, research, and education. In an interdisciplinary professional and academic field, social work applies the theories of psychology, economics, science, and philosophy to meet people’s physical, spiritual, and emotional needs.
