Overview

  • The Master of Social Work (MSW) is designed to educate and prepare students for a career at an advanced level in the social work profession. The MSW will prepare students to become a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), qualifying them for a wider range of employment opportunities (mental health, medical social work, child welfare, etc.) working with various populations (children, adolescents, adults, elderly, disabled, etc.). The MSW program has three different specializations: Addictions, Mental Health, and Engaging with Diverse Populations, which will focus on the Latino, Polynesian, and Refugee communities. These areas of focus are projected to be significant areas of growth within the social work field over the next decade and beyond.

Upon graduation, students will have also completed approximately 1,000 hours of field practicum experience.
