About

The mission of the UAA Master of Social Work (MSW) program is to prepare advanced generalist social workers who address health and social issues in Alaska.

Overview

Alaska’s unique and rich multicultural populations, geographic remoteness, and frontier status allow the real potential for skilled social work professionals to make a profound impact on social, economic and environmental injustice in our state. The MSW program is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE). The program is reviewed by CSWE for reaffirmation on a regular basis.

The MSW is structured to allow students to participate in full-time, part-time or distance education plans requiring from one to four years of study, dependent upon prior academic preparation for graduate studies in social work. The MSW curriculum has two components: the foundation curriculum and the concentration curriculum.
