Program Details

Social work is a profession dedicated to enhancing the quality of life, the pursuit of social justice, and helping a wide range of individuals to reach their full potential. Social workers are compassionate and understanding promoters of human dignity, diversity, and self-determination in the battle against exploitation, addiction, violence, and oppression. The online MSW at The Catholic University of America proudly represents these ideals by providing students with the knowledge they'll need to make a difference in their own lives, and in the lives of those around them.
