The Master of Social Work (M.S.W.) curriculum is a two-year (60 credits) sequence that prepares students for professional social work practice. The M.S.W. program is fully accredited by the Council on Social Work Education. Students acquire the knowledge and skills that enable them to help alleviate social problems, gain a broad perspective in assessing social needs, and acquire the skills necessary to address needs and challenges of individuals, groups, and communities. Graduate social workers should be able to help others reach the most satisfying social adjustment possible and to work for social conditions that will provide an equitable opportunity for individual fulfillment.
Students in this major gain a broad training in the holistic and comparative field that is contemporary anthropology. Majors take introductory courses in each of the four sub-fields of anthropological inquiry: biological anthropology, archaeology, cultural anthropology, and linguistics. Our capstone senior seminar is the only other required course. Majors can choose to focus in one of the four areas, or experience the full diversity of our discipline by selecting courses from across the four sub-fields. This flexibility allows students to plan an individualized sequence of coursework most applicable to their interests and goals, with advice and direction from their faculty advisor.
