The Social Work program offered by the Metropolitan State University of Denver promotes the values and work of the profession, through teaching, service, research and collaboration.

The strength of social work is in its versatility and roots in social justice. This program will equip students to fulfill a variety of professional roles such as clinician, therapist, leader, organizer, and activist. This Integrative Practice approach to our advanced curriculum prepares students to be leaders that understand how to work effectively across multiple systems.
