Program Description

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 has three different specializations: Addictions, Mental Health, 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.

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, and a capstone course. Upon graduation, students will have also completed approximately 1,000 hours of field practicum experience. The program offers elective tracks in addictions, mental health, and engaging with diverse populations.

Admission Requirements

Potential students must apply for admission into the program. To be accepted, students must have completed a Bachelor’s degree, preferably in Psychology, Social Work, or a related area. However, applicants who have a Bachelor’s degree in another field may be admitted to the program if they can demonstrate significant work or volunteer experience in the Human Services field. All applicants are required to complete SW 1010, BESC 3010, and BESC 3020 or equivalent courses outside of UVU.
