The School of Social Sciences at The Apollo University offers a Master of Social Work program that aims to develop professionally trained graduates to devote themselves to helping vulnerable people and communities work through challenges they face in everyday life. The University has good connections with UN Agencies, Government Agencies, CSR Initiatives, and NGOs.

Social workers practice in a wide variety of settings, united in their commitment to advocating for and improving the lives of individuals, families, groups, and societies.

We have skilled and experienced faculty to impart the required knowledge, skills, and attitude to students desired by the work area. Moreover, we facilitate our students with fieldwork and block placement to ensure a hands-on experience and make them industry-ready. Social work involves helping others overcome challenges.
