The School for Social Work is located on the campus of Smith College, consistently ranked by U.S. News and World Report magazine as one of the top liberal-arts colleges in the country. Its beautiful 127-acre campus is set in a river valley flanked by mountains. The student houses and administrative buildings, ranging in architectural style from Gothic to Colonial to modern, lend a distinctive character not found on most campuses. Though just a five-minute walk from vibrant downtown Northampton, home to 30,000 people, the campus, with its towering trees, flower beds, open fields, and scenic Paradise Pond, feels like the countryside.
In addition to the pleasure of residing in such breathtaking surroundings, the real advantage of being on the Smith campus is the number of facilities and academic resources available to graduate social work students studying at Smith College.
Smith College's renowned Museum of Art, art library and art department have a distinguished new home in the Brown Fine Arts Center.
The Botanic Garden of Smith College encompasses the college's 125-acre campus, including a variety of specialty gardens and the Lyman Plant House, our 12,000 square-foot glass conservatory.
