School of Social Service Administration
For more than 100 years, the University of Chicago School of Social Service Administration (SSA) has defined the fields of social work and social welfare. Today, SSA is one of the top three graduate schools of social work in the world. Our remarkably diverse students arrive with energy, empathy, intelligence, and a keen desire to serve. We give them the firm theoretical foundation, the clinical and policy perspective, and the hands-on experience to make a meaningful impact in the lives of the most vulnerable people in our society.
