Program Description

Unique to our highly ranked MSW program, is an integrated trauma-informed and human rights perspective, offering a transformational lens to focus your social work policy and practice.

For qualifying applicants with BSW degrees, full and part-time advanced standing programs provide a faster route to the MSW degree. Interdisciplinary degree programs such as the JD/MSW, MBA/MSW, and MPH/MSW, welcome inquiries from advanced-standing and traditional applicants (full time only).
