MSW Program Director's Welcome
Welcome to our community of learning! In pursuing this degree, I think you will find that it is a transforming experience. As you learn about social work, its mission, value base, and body of knowledge, I think you will find that you will view the nature of societal challenges and approaches to them in new ways. Learning experiences will occur from many sources: faculty, textbooks and readings, class discussion, fellow students, practica, field instructors, school, campus, and local, national, or international communities. You will explore the interconnections of research and policy with social work practice. Through your practica, you will continue your education and development as a social worker and integrate the coursework with daily social work experiences.
It is my desire that as you pursue the MSW degree, you are provided with
strong teaching, advising, mentoring, and curricular and policy information.
Best wishes for a successful academic year,
Janice Chadha Khan,Ph.D, MSW
Director of the MSW Program
