Social Work

The MSW program offers courses and field work that enable students to think critically about the social and economical challenges facing at-risk children, adults and the elderly. Students are equipped with the personal and technical skills to serve society’s neediest members but are grounded in the research necessary to solve some of their greatest problems. The program is designed to prepare students for direct agency-based practice, management of nonprofit and public agencies, and direct community practice and leadership positions in the social work profession.
