Master of Social Work
Students learn to advance social and economic justice through the rigorous Master of Social Work (MSW) in the School of Social Work, part of Temple’s College of Public Health. Professional training in clinical skills and research-supported practices will enable you to support and advocate for vulnerable populations including children, the elderly and those living in poverty. This highly regarded MSW program also serves as a laboratory for building resilient and healthy communities by focusing on capacity building, policy advocacy and support of at-risk populations.
The field of social work addresses a wide range of social issues, including juvenile justice, poverty, substance abuse, violence against minorities, ex-offender rehabilitation, housing discrimination, immigration issues and others.
The Temple MSW maximizes flexibility for working professionals. Students can complete the master’s program in person full-time or part-time, or completely online part-time. You are also able to customize your degree based on your interests and career goals: Students select from a range of advanced-level coursework that allows them to examine in greater depth a practice modality (or concentration) and a field of practice (or specialization).
With the versatility of a Master of Social Work degree, you will be equipped for careers in a wide variety of fields, including community-based healthcare, public policy, mental health counseling, child protection, hospital care coordination and advocacy. Our graduates work as community organizers, therapists, managers in social services and healthcare systems, and program directors.
