Master of Social Work

Established in 1995, Social work at VSU has a strong tradition of providing quality education through Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) accredited advanced generalist program.  VSU’s Master of Social Work program is on the cutting edge of technology, becoming the first social work program in the state to offer a web hybrid program in 2003. An undergraduate degree in Social Work is not required to apply for the Master of Social Work program. Students who apply to the Master of Social Work program typically have undergraduate majors including, but not limited to: Child and Family Behavior, Criminal Justice, Human Services, Psychology, Social Work, Sociology, and Social/Behavioral Sciences.

The curriculum is divided into multiple track options to fit the needs of many different students. An Advanced Standing Option is available for candidates who have earned the B.S.W. degree and meet the criteria for Advanced Standing admission.
