Social Work Department
The Social Work Department introduces a new Master of Social Work (MSW) degree program!
The first cohort of MSW students will start classes in Fall 2019.
Our undergraduate social work majors serve as volunteers in the introductory course and later, as seniors, undertake more than 400 hours of field experience per year and intensive practice skills labs. As a BSW student, you’ll not only develop skills for directly helping individuals but also for advocating on their behalf.
Graduate social work students also engage is simulated practice experiences in our skills lab, and must complete over 900 hours of field placement before earning their MSWs.
Our social work programs measure student competencies according to the Council on Social Work Education's Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards, so that the degrees students earn at NMU will open the door to positions in a wide array of social work settings and licensure across the United States.
