About the Master of Social Work Program
The Master of Social Work degree at Park University prepares advanced social workers to be effective and efficient practitioners within a concentration of Behavioral Health. Areas of emphasis within this concentration include Children and Families, Gerontological Social Work and Military Social Work. The MSW program at Park is expecting to earn full accreditation through the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) Commission on Accreditation (COA) in February, 2016.
Graduates who complete the Master’s in social work will understand and be able to implement the 10 Core Competencies of Advanced Social Work Practice (Council on Social Work Education, 2008). The mastery of the competencies will be assessed by the delivery of measurable practice behaviors that are reflected in course work as well as in the Field Education setting. Students also plan, implement, evaluate and disseminate the results of their individualized Integrative Seminar Project (ISP) which is developed in collaboration with faculty and community agency partners.
