Graduate Program

The DePaul MSW degree program began in 2005 as another example of the university's special commitment to service, justice, and opportunity. The degree offers a graduate, professional option to those who are interested in studying social work within the context of a Vincentian, Catholic, and urban institution.

The aims and goals of the MSW program center on education for ethical practice. It exists as a partnership between students, agencies, and the university, whose representatives work to create a curriculum which prepares students for lifelong learning, and models progressive social work practice in its entirety.
