The MSW in Clinical Practice will prepare you to promote the health, development, recovery, and community integration of persons who are living with emotional distress, mental illness, substance use, and/or the absence or loss of positive relationships with their environments. Guided by principles of culturally responsive, anti-racist, anti-oppressive social work practice, you will build specialized knowledge and skills in trauma-informed, community-based, empirically supported clinical practice with individuals, families, groups, and their communities.
Complete the MSW program (60 credits) in two or three years of full-time study, including 950 hours of supervised practicums. Employed students are strongly encouraged to choose the three-year program plan.
Your MSW degree will qualify you for State of Connecticut LMSW Licensure and for professional social work positions in public and private agencies throughout the United States.
The MSW Program is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE).
