Master of Social Work What is an Advanced Generalist Master of Social Work Degree?
Put power behind your commitment to social justice with an Advanced Generalist Master of Social Work degree. Our social work graduate students are driven to make a difference in local and global communities while increasing their abilities for leadership roles through CSU’s evidence-based, experiential programs.
As an Advanced Generalist student, you will gain greater skill in assessing, planning, intervening, and evaluating across multiple system levels in order to respond to the evolving needs of individuals, families, groups, organizations, and communities. You will also complete an applied research project designed and implemented in groups to culminate knowledge and skill application. You may also gain specialization by completing a graduate certificate.
We have one of the most well-established Master of Social Work programs in the Mountain West. Colorado State University is a public land-grant institution with a strong network of alumni and community connections for field placements.
Our cohort model means you will go through your MSW program with the same group. This model fosters friendships and support networks, creating lasting bonds far beyond graduation day.
