College of Education and Social Services

At the College of Education and Social Services, we couple a transformative liberal arts education with highly specialized training in the education and social service fields.

As one of the oldest Catholic universities in Florida, our goal is to foster our Benedictine values of intellectual curiosity and community-minded integrity. Through close faculty mentorships, field internships, and applied learning experiences, we prepare students for careers in education, social work, criminal justice, and human services.

Our professors remain active in their respective fields as researchers and practitioners, and their innovation earns Saint Leo industry-leading recognition. Our undergraduate and graduate social work programs are accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE).

Because we understand the changing needs of today's students, we provide options such as evening and weekend courses as well as online offerings.
