Master of Social Work

Empower children and families to improve their lives and enhance their capacity for navigating support systems at both community and institutional levels.

Erikson’s Master of Social Work (MSW) program will prepare you to develop the skills of counseling, education, and advocacy needed for effective social work practice.

Ours is the only developmentally informed MSW in the nation, with in-depth child development knowledge integrated across the program curriculum. This developmental perspective prepares you to use a strength-based approach to address and advocate for the complex needs of children, youth, families, and communities.
