A brief description of the graduate-level degree program:

Pacific University's MSW program offers an advanced degree based on the purpose of the social work profession, which is to promote human and community well-being. Guided by a person-in-environment construct, a global perspective, a respect for human diversity, and knowledge based on scientific inquiry, social work's purpose is carried out through its quest for social and economic justice, the prevention of conditions that limit human rights, the elimination of poverty, and the enhancement of the quality of life for all persons.

Grounded in values and ethical principles of social work, the MSW program at Pacific University seeks to provide to the people of the Pacific Northwest culturally-competent, well-trained, professional generalist social workers with advanced training in health and wellness who have special preparation to work with immigrant and native Latino peoples, other persons of color, rural residents, children and older adults, among others
