Bachelor of Social Work

Since 1974 we have graduated over 2,000 students with BSW degrees prepared to work as generalist social work practitioners all over the state, region, and nation. The undergraduate Social Work program is committed to providing students with the necessary knowledge and skills to enter social work practice as a professional.

Master of Social Work

Since 1984 the MSW program has graduated over 500 students prepared to work as advanced generalist social work practitioners including in international arenas. Graduates of our programs are prepared to work with a wide range of clientele (individuals, families or other households, groups, organizations, and communities).

Doctoral Degree

In 2012 the school added a doctoral program (PhD) with the goal of preparing MSW graduates for careers in academia or research. The degree is a doctor of philosophy and is the only PhD program at a public university in an eight state region.

Social Work Alumni Association

The primary goals of the social work Alumni Association include enhancing the reputation of the School; supporting the School in its many educational and community-based projects and initiatives; helping foster a true sense of a CSU/School of Social Work alumnus community; and as a conduit for the exchange of ideas and ideals with other CSU social work graduates.
