Social work is yet to be recognised as a discipline independent of Sociology. In order to develop as an independent discipline in its own right, social work educators need to come together and examine the need to set standards for social work education and practice appropriate to their cultural contexts. This article attempts to review historical emergence of undergraduate, graduate and post graduate level social work education in Arabic countries.
