Stockton University's Master of Social Work (MSW) Program is designed to educate social workers who are prepared for advanced-level practice with diverse individuals, families, and communities. 


The Social Work program at Stockton University aims to produce graduates who understand the human condition and the commonalities that all people share, while respecting and honoring differences in personal and communal history, social class, race, color, ethnicity, culture, language, immigration status, gender, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, age, political ideology, religion and disability status.

About the Program

The Program is built upon a strong foundation of generalist social work practice values, knowledge and skills. Students are expected to understand and be able to apply an ecosystems perspective, the strengths perspective and empowerment practice theory. They develop a thorough acquaintance with the negative effects of oppression, discrimination, marginalization and other social forces that block people’s ability to meet their basic human needs.

They are expected to critically examine multiple theories, perspectives and approaches as they become acquainted with research literature and as they develop experience in agency practice.

Continuing the central focus of the undergraduate program, the MSW Program aims to produce graduates who have a lifelong commitment to upholding human rights, respecting human diversity and working towards social justice in their professional and personal lives.
