Forensic social workers practice in a number of settings that may include courthouses, rape crisis centers, intimate partner violence agencies, and legal advocacy groups among many other venues.
More information about specific course requirements will be available Winter 2018. Contact MSWProgram@DePaul.edu if you have questions in the meantime.
In Winter 2015, the Department of Social Work began publication of Communities, a twice-annual newsletter that will detail projects and accomplishments of students, faculty, alumni, and other stakeholders. In fall 2018, the department began a blog version to accommodate more timely information and updates. Archived copies of the original newsletter are posted on the blog as well.
