Graduate Programs, Social Work
Are you interested in social justice? Do you appreciate diversity? Would you like to work with vulnerable individuals and groups? Would you like to learn direct practice skills, as well as strategies for creating social change?
Widener’s graduate social work programs have been designed to meet the educational and lifestyle needs of students seeking an advanced degree in social work. Our classes are organized as small seminars that foster student involvement and participation. Learning is viewed as an interactive, dynamic process in which students learn from one another as well as from faculty members.
The Center for Social Work Education offers both a master of social work (MSW) and doctor of philosophy (PhD) degree. We also offer dual degree graduate programs in social work and human sexuality education.
You'll find that our social work programs provide the academic preparation and hands-on experiences needed to develop critical thinking and the professional skills necessary to affect positive change in the lives of disadvantaged populations and communities.

Our MSW program, educating social workers since 1991, is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education.
