George Fox University's Master of Social Work (MSW) program builds on the successful foundation of the university’s Bachelor of Social Work program, both of which are accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE). George Fox has one of only three Oregon MSW programs and is the only Christian school in Oregon to offer this degree.

Students who already have a bachelor's in social work may be eligible for the Advanced Standing program, which enables students to earn their MSW in nine months

While pursuing our Master of Social Work degree prepares students directly for field work, it also diversifies experience and opens up a world of options and opportunities because of the foundational training we provide. Read more about the benefits of a MSW degree here!

Field Internships

The program includes field internships in social service agencies and programs that match students’ choice of concentration and their professional interests. Internships are arranged through the program, so you don't have to secure them on your own.

Spiritual Integration

George Fox students are trained to understand how various religious and spiritual worldviews and practices, including the Christian worldview, influence the way they practice within the profession of social work.
