Chairman of the department Department of Social Work
Welcome to the Department of Social Work at Pabna Universality of Science and Technology. It is a great honor and privilege to serve as Chair of the Department of Social Work. Social work is a humanizing and enabling profession. It helps people so that they can help themselves. It’s also called the profession of people helping people. The main focus of the department is to provide skilled, competent and diversified social workers to ensure community well-being and social justice with special attention to vulnerable populations.
We are proud to be a diverse group of students, faculty and staff members dedicated to the values and ideas of social work. The department offers both the BSW and MSW degree options. Our students are prepared to meet the needs of diverse populations in poverty, illiteracy, empowering women, health care, child welfare, public policy, development policy and mental health services.
Our faculty has expertise in areas such as social development, social problems, women violence, child welfare, family welfare, HIV/AIDS, disabilities, aging and social security. Every faculty member is actively engaged in teaching, publishing research work, providing consultation and training, and sharing expertise at local, regional and national conferences and events. In addition, we enrich our courses consistent with the demand of time and current social work practice experiences to meet the present and future challenges.
On behalf of our faculty and students in the department of Social Work, I extend my best wishes to all.
