The Department of Social Work aims to prepare social workers for autonomous, knowledge-based, advanced generalist practice within an integrated community of scholars, practitioners and learners.

The MSW program helps students acquire a broad base of knowledge and skills to address the needs of families, individuals, groups, organizations and communities.
