MSW - Application
We are pleased to provide you with application information material for the MSW Program of the School of Social Work at Eastern Michigan University.
The curriculum and philosophy of our MSW Program reflects our faculty’s commitment to our mission statement--a commitment we hope you share. Our MSW Program prepares social workers to find empowering solutions to social problems and to meet the needs of the most impoverished, oppressed, and underserved people. It is specifically designed to accommodate full-time employees in the human services field by providing a part-time program. All classes are offered only on weekday evenings and Saturdays. We offer three advanced concentrations for professional social work practice, namely Child and Family Services, Mental Illness and Chemical Dependency Services, and Aging Services (see description below).
