The Master of Social Work (MSW) program at the Bowling Green State University prepares students to offer a broad  array of skills and knowledge critical to helping others. If you are passionate about social justice, policy, clinical practice, and developing or improving services, the MSW gives you the skills you need. 


This Social Work degree at the Bowling Green State University sets you on a path to becoming a leader capable of contributing to solutions for the challenges facing our society.

Our program provides a blend of online, face-to-face and evening courses tailored to meet the needs of working professionals and newly graduated students. A low student-to-teacher ratio provides opportunities for quality connections between students and faculty, and small cohorts mean students receive personalized attention. 

Classes emphasize experiential learning through the application of concepts and skills in agency or community settings, and our curriculum offers a specialization in gerontological social work. We offer a highly professional and  supportive learning environment designed to ensure student success as highly competent social work practitioners. 


The goals for our students are as follows:

  • Graduate social workers who have the knowledge, skills, and values to enhance the well-being of individuals, small groups, and communities. 
  • Graduate social workers who engage in advanced social work for transformative practice with older adults, their families, communities, and service providers.
