The M.S.W. programs at WSU has a single concentration in clinical practice. Beyond this concentration students are able to explore practice areas of interest through elective offered by the program.

About

These areas include practice with children, practice in health care settings, gerontology, school social work, and substance abuse treatment. The program prepares all students for licensure at the entry graduate level (LCSW in MA) and ultimately for advanced independent licensure (LICSW in MA).

The clinical M.S.W. program at WSU begins with a generalist base and then builds clinical knowledge, values and skills on that base. The program emphasizes leadership throughout the practice community in evaluating and analyzing existing and emerging areas of knowledge to advance social service delivery, social policies, and direct practice with the vulnerable, disenfranchised and marginalized populations that are served by social workers.
