Department Statement

The Department of Social Work offers graduate instruction leading to the Master of Social Work (MSW) Degree to a diverse, multicultural and multiracial student population. The faculty, through teaching, advising and the field experience, works to foster a sense of activism, social justice, commitment to change and a new vision of professional competence in students admitted to the program. The MSW degree is especially oriented to preparing social work professionals for practice in the urban Bay Area with at-risk populations such as women, people of color and other oppressed populations. The two-year program requires 88-89 units. Currently there are two concentrations: Children, Youth and Families and Community Mental Health. Within the program of study, students engage in both academic classes and a field experience. This unique melding of coursework and field experiences is designed to provide students with a maximum of preparation for effective social work practice in today’s increasingly diverse, complex multicultural and multiracial society.
