Master of Social Work (MSW) Program is designed to educate social workers who are prepared for advanced-level practice with diverse individuals, families, and communities. The Program aims to produce graduates who understand the human condition and the commonalities that all people everywhere share, while respecting and honoring differences in personal and communal history, social class, race, color, ethnicity, culture, language, immigration status, gender, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, age, political ideology, religion, and disability status.

The Program will establish and build upon a strong foundation of generalist social work practice values, knowledge, and skills. Students will be expected to understand and be able to apply an ecosystems perspective, the strengths perspective, and empowerment practice theory. They will develop a thorough acquaintance with the negative effects of oppression, discrimination, marginalization, and other social forces that block people’s ability to meet their basic human needs. They will develop familiarity with multiple theories, perspectives, and approaches that will strengthen their ability to work effectively with diverse populations. They will be expected to critically examine these theories, perspectives, and approaches as they become acquainted with research literature and as they develop experience in agency practice.

Continuing the central focus of Stockton's undergraduate program, the MSW Program aims to produce graduates who have a lifetime commitment to upholding human rights, respecting human diversity, and working towards social justice in their professional and personal lives.
