The San Diego Academic Center, located 20 miles north of San Diego in Rancho Bernardo, offers courses for students pursuing a Master of Social Work, many of whom are veterans, active-duty soldiers or military spouses. The San Diego Academic Center enjoys a close working relationship with Camp Pendleton, the major West Coast base of the U.S. Marine Corps, as well as the VA Medical Center and other government, health and social services agencies in the area. The USC Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work has long recognized the growing need to train social workers in mental health services for veterans and their families, and the academic center’s proximity to such a large military population offers students an ideal place to study military social work. The USC Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work will not be accepting applications for Fall 2016 and beyond.
