Master of Social Work Program

Celebrating 25 Years

For 25 years, the joint MSW program with St. Catherine University and University of St. Thomas has focused on clinical social work practice with individuals, families and small groups. Through the development of core competencies in clinical practice, graduates are prepared to think 
critically and diagnostically, to develop and implement clinical 
interventions, to evaluate relevant client outcomes, and to integrate
 macro perspectives in clinical work. Graduates are also prepared to deal with problems including mental illness, developmental disabilities, poverty, discrimination and oppression. 

Not all of our graduates ultimately apply for clinical licensure, but all are academically on-track to do so. As clinical licensure becomes increasingly important in many aspects of social work practice, our graduates' solid foundation in clinical social work theory, practice, and research prepares them for myriad opportunities in our rapidly growing profession.
