Mission of the School of Social Work

Informed by a Catholic tradition, as well as the University’s and  profession’s intersecting values, the Marywood University School of Social Work prepares a wide variety of beginning, career-changing and mid-career students at the generalist (BSW) and advanced (MSW) level to engage in competent, culturally responsive, and evidence-informed micro, mezzo, and macro level social work practice with diverse client systems. BSW and MSW graduates respond to the evolving needs of oppressed and marginalized populations in local, regional, national, and global communities, guided by a commitment to social and economic justice.
