Job Placement: According to Bureau of Labor Statistics, there were more than 728,000 social workers in the United States. There is an expected growth in jobs of 7 percent by 2022-2032, making social work one of the fastest growing professions. The median annual wage for social workers is $55,350 (US Bureau of Labor Statics, 2022).

Prepare for Graduate School: Graduates with a BSW wanting to obtain a Master of Social Work (MSW) can apply for Advanced Standing status which greatly reduces the graduate credit hours, and tuition for degree completion.



Social Work Program provides a learning environment where students are taught to think critically, participate actively in their education, and grow as individuals while respecting the rapidly changing global society. Experiences in classroom, campus, and community demonstrate how to implement anti-racist and anti-oppressive perspectives that directly impact social, racial, economic, and environmental justice. Through competency development, students demonstrate best practice knowledge, values and skills to become effective change agents with individuals, families, groups and communities, and provide outstanding ethical leadership in the field.



MSSU’s Social Work field education consists of two semesters of hands-on social work practice. Students build their resume through completing a 450-hour practicum in a field setting of their selected population group and community of interest.
