Social Work is a profession that seeks to improve the quality of people’s lives and works toward a more diverse and humane society. As a social worker, you will have opportunities to work with individuals, families, groups, communities, and organizations. There will also be opportunities for research, engagement in policy work, and other related social work interests.

The School of Social Work at Southern University at New Orleans offers the Master of Social Work (MSW) degree, which is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education.

The Master of Social Work program builds upon the foundation of generalist practice (1st year of the program) and prepares students for advanced specialization practice in one of two areas of practice specialization and method of practice. The areas of specialization are Children, Youth, and Families (CYF) and Health/Mental Health (H/MH).

At SUNO’s School of Social Work, the emphasis is placed on the strengths of individual client systems, albeit an individual or community. The program’s themes of empowerment, advocacy, and transformation undergird and permeate the total curriculum. The curricula of both programs have an eco-systems focus that directs attention to problem identification, assessment, and intervention strategies. You will also be exposed to the values of the profession of social work through your classes and through interaction with other students. Value orientation is an important part of your education and professional development.

Join us for a very rewarding learning experience.

Goals and Mission

The SUNO Master of Social Work program is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education and the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Associations of Colleges and Schools. The Master of Social Work is a professional degree program administered in advanced standing, full-time and part-time plans, which provides social work education in preparation for beginning specialized professional practice in Children, Youth & Family (CYF) or Health/Mental Health (H/MH).

The graduate social work program began in 1983. A social welfare department was created in 1972 to administer the newly established BSW program. The MSW program has been accredited since 1983.
