The mission of our GSSWSR is to prepare students to work with diverse groups across disciplinary and professional boundaries, and to flexibly apply their knowledge and skills across a wide range of settings for Social Work practice, education, and research. We value a critical understanding of social responsibility and purposeful, reasoned, and imaginative action in pursuit of a just and democratic world. Through its MSS and Ph.D. degree programs and continuing professional education, our School and MSS program in particular, purposefully educates Social Workers for advanced agency-based practice, independent practice, and leadership positions in the human services field. Through its courses and field-based learning, we prepare students to place their work within theoretical frameworks that support activities of assessment, intervention and evaluation, and stress facility with knowledge, skills and values. Our School expects students to think conceptually, act ethically, and systematically process socially just practice. To that end, we develop and execute a master’s level education with an explicit and implicit curriculum that addresses 21st Century societal issues with the goal of evidencing the nexus of theory and practice informed by an understanding of the diversity of the human experience. Through masters concentrations in both micro and macro-direct Social Work practice and in our doctoral program, we continue to embrace and incorporate the College’s liberal arts education and its contributions in addressing human needs, as we also create and sustain mutually beneficial and transformative partnerships locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally.
