DEPARTMENT OF SOCIAL WORK

Introduction

Baluchistan as a lag behind and developing province of country and region faces acute challenges of poverty, illiteracy, provision of basic health and unemployment. These issues have been inherited by the population of the province during the preand post-colonial eras. In the wake of globalization, free market economy and overwhelming urbanization, capital intensive development, and speedy communication the rural communities would particularly suffer at different ends.  The ecology of learning, expression, language, value systems and livelihood patters would be wiped out if specific actions and research studies are not carried for analyzing their needs and sustainable ways to initiate viable development ventures. Professionally trained Social Workers in this respect have a significant role in accelerating and humanizing the processes of development especially in Balochistan. 

Recognizing the need for professionally trained Social Workers, Social Work education at postgraduate level was introduced in the University of Balochistan in March, 1974. Since inception, the Department of Social Work has been conducting two years M.A program in Social Work.  The department has created cadres of thousands of young male and female professionals and has also established academic linkages with various likeminded institutions. Currently, the Department of Social Work is a full member of the International Association of Schools of Social Work. (IASSW)
