Program Overview

Program Description:

Northcentral University’s Master of Social Work (MSW) program will help prepare students for a career in a variety of social service settings. Designed to align with competencies from the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE), students will gain knowledge, skills and experience that they can directly utilize in the workplace.  This program consists of two tracks: a Generalist Track for students that do not have an undergraduate degree from a CSWE accredited program and an Advanced Generalist Track for those that do. Students on both tracks will also benefit from experiential learning opportunities. Upon the successful completion of the program, students will be prepared to work in a variety of clinical and non-clinical settings that includes local, county and state child welfare agencies, non-profit agencies, medical facilities and correctional settings.

The Northcentral University’s MSW program has achieved Candidacy for Accreditation by the Council on Social Work Education’s (CSWE) Commission on Accreditation, 1701 Duke Street, Suite 200, Alexandria, VA 22314-3457, 703-683-8080, www.cswe.org.  Candidacy for a baccalaureate or master’s social work program by the Council on Social Work Education’s Commission on Accreditation indicates that it has made progress toward meeting criteria for the assessment of program quality evaluated through a peer review process.  A program that has attained Candidacy has demonstrated a commitment to meeting the compliance standards set by the Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards, but has not yet demonstrated full compliance. Students who enter programs that attain Candidacy in or before the academic year in which they begin their program of study will be retroactively recognized as having graduated from a CSWE-accredited program once the program attains Initial Accreditation.  Candidacy is typically a three-year process and attaining Candidacy does not guarantee that a program will eventually attain Initial Accreditation.  Candidacy applies to all program sites and program delivery methods of an accredited program.  Accreditation provides reasonable assurance about the quality of the program and the competence of students graduating from the program.
