Social Work, M.S.W.

We are committed to shaping the future of our region as the educational partner of choice, setting a standard of excellence by serving the academic, cultural, social, and economic needs of our diverse communities.

The Master of Social Work (MSW) graduate degree academically prepares competent and effective professionals at the generalist and advanced generalist levels. Additionally, the curriculum allows students to focus their studies in one of these areas:

  • Indigenous & Rural Communities
  • Behavioral Health
  • Children & Adolescents

Offered on the Tahlequah campus, the curriculum integrates the knowledge, skills, and values of the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) competencies and behavioral indicators (and is in pre-candidacy for accreditation by this body) along with the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) Code of Ethics. These key foundations prepare our graduates to practice social work in a wide range of social work agencies and allied settings with diverse client systems and people. The NSU MSW degree has a unique focus in addressing social work practice with Native American populations.

Why Northeastern State University?

Faculty members strive for high levels of classroom performance and work hard to advance knowledge in their disciplines. You will find that the graduate classes are small, allowing for better relationships between faculty and students. Many of our faculty serve as graduate advisors to assist you in every way and ensure your experience at NSU is a positive one.
