Social workers empower people and communities while creating positive change at a local and national level. The Graduate School of Social Work (GSSW) dual undergraduate + Master of Social Work (MSW) degree allows students to combine an undergraduate degree in almost any field with an MSW degree. By earning both a bachelor's degree and master's degree in just five years, students gain a head start in their professional career while experiencing a significant cost savings. GSSW students join a unified community dedicated to inclusion, diversity and equity for all people.
An MSW degree can open the door to hundreds of rewarding careers, including everything from counseling to public policy to global practice. With 10 concentration options, the GSSW curriculum features specialized classes that allow students to advance their careers in a variety of industries within government entities, corporations and community agencies. Faculty provide an individualized learning experience and encourage students to participate in research projects that influence the development of a more just world. Throughout the program, students gain systemic, ethical and relational skills to make a significant impact working with oppressed populations.
