Graduate Programs

Salem State's master of social work program prepares students to become change agents in their work with individuals, families, small groups, organizations, and communities. Using ecological systems framework, the advanced generalist perspective emphasizes the person in environment configuration and the transactional relationships within and among micro and macro systems. Students are well prepared for effective, culturally competent social work practice in a wide range of social work settings. Students are eligible for licensure examinations upon graduation.
