    Welcome to the Eastern Washington's School of Social Work!

    We offer both an undergraduate, Bachelor of Social Work (BASW) and a graduate, Master of Social Work (MSW).  Each program is fully accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE www.cswe.org) .


    Our undergraduate and foundation graduate courses emphasize student-centered learning of the values, knowledge and skills needed by professional social workers to engage, assess, intervene and evaluate with individuals, families, organizations or society. 

    At the graduate level students broaden their understanding of the individual, group, community, and societal context of social work practice, and select additional courses to deepen knowledge and skills in one or more of the following areas of practice: aging, palliative care, disabilities, public health, mental health, addiction, school social work, and child welfare.  

    Both of our undergraduate and graduate social work students engage in practicum placements in social welfare agencies and organizations located throughout the state, working alongside professional social workers and learning the roles and activities associated with the requisite competencies of professional practice. Practicum and seminars conducted in the final year of study connect the knowledge, skills, and values learned in the classroom with the real world experienced in agencies.
