MSW Program Goals
The goals of the MSW Program serve to prepare students to engage in advanced social
work practice at the macro-level of social systems.
Goal One: Provide students with social work knowledge, values, ethics, and skills for critical
analysis of social theory, policy, practice, and research, as applied to diverse populations
and populations -at-risk.
Goal Two: Prepare students for leadership roles in the development, program planning, implementation,
and evaluation of culturally competent services, policy, and research designed to
alleviate poverty, oppression, and other forms of social injustice within a concentration
in social work administration, policy, and community development.
The MSW Program is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education. The accreditation status is important as many states, programs and graduate schools
have policies which require or prefer MSW graduates from accredited social work programs.
All MSW students must complete a field placement/internship as a requirement for graduation.
