Master of Social Work - Families and Children

Program Description:

The MSW@USC is the first top-ranked MSW program offered nationally. Many online programs are limited to certain geographic areas or the availability of courses, making it necessary to travel to campus. Our program can be completed from virtually anywhere without the need to relocate to Southern California.

The USC Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work  works with selected agencies and organizations across the country that represents the complete range of social services. This provides MSW@USC students the opportunity to apply what they learn in class and a chance to work with real-life clients in the community.of Social Work offers a 35-credit advanced standing MSW program with both full-time (three semesters) and part-time (five semesters) options. Admission to the advanced standing program allows students to complete their MSW degree in less time than the traditional MSW program by waiving the first-year foundation course requirements. Students applying for this option must demonstrate their readiness to perform at the level of a second-year MSW student.

This concentration emphasizes a “family-centered” model and prepares students for practice with families and children in multicultural urban communities. Students learn developmental/preventive services, problem solving, crisis and remedial services, and protective services for children and adolescents.

Accreditation:

The MSW@USC is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) and the Western Association of Colleges and Schools (WASC).

Eligibility Requirements:

Students must have a Bachelors degree.
