Quinnipiac University has a commitment to the core values of high-quality academic programs, a student-oriented environment, and a strong sense of community. The master of social work program will reflect the mission to prepare students for achievement and leadership in the field of social work.
The MSW program's foundation curriculum and the advanced concentration curriculum reinforce the Quinnipiac value base of understanding real-world issues through practice and the consideration of different perspectives. Every MSW student takes a course on inter-professional education and the advanced concentration curriculum is focused on health/behavioral health. The curricular approach in the MSW program and in other programs, such as in the School of Medicine and the School of Nursing, make the programs unique by directly engaging students in interprofessional education and the health care team approach.
The MSW degree meets the academic requirements for licensure as a licensed clinical social worker, (LCSW). The MSW program is fully accredited by the Council on Social Work Education.
