Built upon the commitment to a strengths perspective of social work practice, the Master of Social Work (M.S.W.) degree program offers educational opportunities for those who wish to expand their skills in helping individuals and communities develop their capacities to support and enhance the quality of life for all people. The school recognizes that individuals with a natural skill in helping come from all backgrounds and encourages them to apply. The Master of Social Work degree prepares graduates for advanced social work practice in 1 of 2 broad areas — clinical social work practice with individuals, families, and groups or social work administrative and advocacy practice aimed at macro-level practice. The first level of the master’s curriculum is a generalist foundation required of all students. The foundation consists of six classroom courses and a two-semester practicum that reflects the generalist intent. At the advanced level, M.S.W. students choose a concentration in clinical social work practice with a focus in a particular field of practice - child and family, health/mental health, aging - or social work administrative and advocacy practice. The advanced level practicum implements the student's choice of concentration.
