About

Welcome to the newly CSWE accredited Masters of Social Work (MSW-UTC) program at The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.

Overview

The Social Work program at The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga is a professionally oriented, evening program designed to prepare individuals for advanced social work practice with individuals, families, groups, and communities as they age through the life course. 

Advanced practice at the MSW level refers to refined training of candidates for use of social work knowledge, values, and skills in specialized areas of practice. Advanced social work practice encompasses knowledge and methods of engagement, assessment, intervention, and evaluation used in non-profit, for-profit, public, and private social service settings to promote the well-being of targeted populations.

Mission Statement

The mission of the MSW-UTC program is to equip students to meet the growing need for advanced social work practitioners to serve individuals, families, groups, and communities in the Southeast Region of Tennessee as they age through the life course. As advanced practitioners, graduates will have a common body of social work knowledge, values, and skills, as well as specialized knowledge and skills to serve aging adults and their families. Graduates will be prepared for practice informed by the principles outlined in the NASW Code of Ethics and transferable among diverse human service settings and population groups.
