Master of Social Work Degree Programs
The Grace Abbott School of Social Work offers the only accredited Master of Social Work (MSW) degree program in the state of Nebraska. The MSW degree is recognized for licensure for independent social work practice in the United States.
Our master’s level programs include the following:
- The MSW foundation level courses are designed for students whose undergraduate degree is not in social work. The MSW advanced standing level courses are tailored for students who have completed a BSSW degree within 10 years or have completed the MSW foundation level courses.
- For students seeking a dual degree focused on agency and program planning, policy, administration and evaluation, we offer a Master of Social Work and Master of Public Administration dual degree (MSW/MPA).
- For those with an interest in criminal justice, we offer a Master of Social Work and Master of Science in Criminology and Criminal Justice dual degree (MSW/MSCRCJ).
- The Master of Social Work and Master of Public Health (MSW/MPH) dual degree program is a collaborative effort between the Grace Abbott School of Social Work and the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Public Health. It offers interdisciplinary preparation in both these fields, requiring fewer credit hours than it would take to obtain each degree independently.
