The Master of Social Work (MSW) is a graduate degree that will prepare you to work as an advanced, professional social worker in a wide range of public and private social service agencies, in health care and public schools, with clients ranging from infants to senior citizens, from agencies to communities, and with challenges such as poverty, mental illness, disabilities, health problems, chemical dependency, abuse, and many others. MSWs work directly with clients in direct practice capacities, as clinicians, serve as program directors, supervisors, agency administrators, and also work in applied research and social welfare policy practice.

Our MSW Program is a full-time, hybrid program (courses taken partially online), which offers classes on Thursdays (evening), Fridays (morning, afternoon, and evening), and Saturdays (mornings and afternoons). Your individual schedule will depend upon the semester, which courses you are taking, and which cohort you are in.

Our MSW Program is fully accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) through October 2022.

If you have questions about the program and can't find answers on our webpage or wish to meet with the Program Director please contact her via email below.
