Master of Social Work

Our exciting program makes graduate social work education accessible for working professionals as well as recent college graduates throughout the western and southern regions of Kentucky. We also welcome many students from nearby areas such as northwestern Tennessee, southern Illinois, southeast Missouri, and beyond. We are fully accredited through CSWE and have been offering the MSW since 2003.

Graduates are prepared as integrated social work practitioners with the values, theoretical knowledge, and skills to function at many levels of intervention: individual, family, group, organizations, and community.
