The Master of Social Work (MSW) is designed to educate and prepare students for a career at an advanced level in the social work profession. The MSW will prepare students to become a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), qualifying them for a wider range of employment opportunities (mental health, medical social work, child welfare, etc.) working with various populations (children, adolescents, adults, elderly, disabled, etc.). The MSW program will have three different specializations: Mental Health, Addictions, and Engaging with Diverse Populations, which will focus on the Latino, Polynesian, and Refugee communities. These areas of focus are projected to be significant areas of growth within the social work field over the next decade and beyond.
Applications are now being accepted for Fall 2017 for the full-time program with courses delivered at the UVU Orem campus. The application is due January 15th 2017.
This dynamic, two year full-time program offers required courses in the areas of social work practice, human behavior and social environment, social welfare policy and analysis, social work with Latino, Pacific Islanders, and other Communities of Color, social work research methods, addictions, various field practicum courses, and a capstone course.
