The university is now accepting applications to its new Master of Social Work (MSW) program, set to begin classes in the fall of 2015. Once launched, George Fox will be the state’s only faith-based college or university with an MSW program and one of only three institutions in the state to offer the degree.
The MSW is a 60-credit-hour, two-year program. Students who already have a bachelor’s degree in social work from George Fox or another program accredited by the Council on Social Work Education can apply for admission to an advanced standing program that enables full-time students to complete the MSW in 10 months.
“An important piece of our mission is that our students serve with passion, and this degree aligns with that mission,” says program director Cliff Rosenbohm. “We stress the integration of Christian faith and the highest standards of social work scholarship and professional practice, with the goal of training leaders to be professionally prepared and globally engaged.”
