The MSW Program emphasizes ecological and systems perspectives which focus on the fit and interactions of a person or system in relation to the various environments likely to be encountered. Within these perspectives, knowledge, values, and skills are used in a change-oriented process within a multicultural context to help individuals and social systems achieve improved quality of life and social participation, including advocacy for just institutions and equitable access to opportunities and resources.

The MSW curriculum prepares students to:

Recognize that the experiential and evolving developmental process may produce a specific and unique set of ethnic and cultural characteristics in each person and group;
Incorporate significant aspects of multiculturalism, and understand, appreciate, and accept ethnic and cultural diversity in their practice;

Distance Education

The MSW program is also offered at off-campus locations throughout the state. Current distance education sites are in the Sonoma County and Ventura County areas. Courses are taught via teleconferencing along with face-to-face instruction, as well as web-based instructional support. The distance education MSW is offered using a 3-year program plan in the Child and Family Wellbeing specialization.

Areas of Specialization

The Master of Social Work degree offers opportunity for study in three areas of specialization: Child and Family Wellbeing, Adulthood and Aging, and Integrated Health. Students designate their choice of specialization during the foundation coursework. Advanced Standing Program students are offered admission to a specific specialization. The second-year courses and field placement will be determined by this choice of specialization.

Child and Family Wellbeing Specialization

The Child and Family Wellbeing specialization prepares students to use strength-based and evidence-based approaches to promote positive child and family functioning across diverse populations.

This specialization provides a solid framework for students interested in working in child protective services, schools and other public agencies or community-based non-profits.
