A Higher Calling
  • As an inclusive, Christ-centered university, we at Spring Arbor University Online believe Jesus Christ to be the very first social worker. While there was no name for social work at the time, Jesus organized his mission around the human issues of love, charity, aiding the suffering and elevating the downtrodden. It’s a message we can all learn from and follow as we aspire to help the diverse range of individuals, families, groups, organizations and communities at risk to social and economic injustices and discrimination.
  • Child Welfare Endorsement available to qualified Michigan residents
  • Our balanced online social work curriculum focuses on both theory and skill development
