Name of the sustainability-focused, graduate-level degree program (2nd program):
Master's of Social Work (MSW)

A brief description of the graduate degree program (2nd program):

As one of the helping professions, Social Work strives to serve populations that are vulnerable, in need of basic services and resources, or attempting to make a change in their lives. Positions in human service settings address a wide range of issues, such as child welfare, chemical dependency, physical and mental health, aging, and corrections. Social workers are, also, concerned with the community or setting where people spend their daily lives. As well as helping on a personal level, a career in social work can include working for social change to benefit the larger community.

The vision of this Department reflects a central belief that its curriculum be guided by the principle of doing what is right and just — teaching students to willingly accept the professional responsibility to act as the "heart and conscience" of the profession in their respective communities or as part of the profession-at-large, to advocate on behalf of those who suffer discrimination, devaluing and oppression. The Department's mission and goals stem from its vision.

The UW Oshkosh MSW has four Goals:
Prepare advanced degree social workers to assume leadership roles in clinical/mental health care and health care settings in order to meet the growing needs of the Fox Valley and beyond.
Prepare professional social workers to engage in activities that will contribute to the development and improvement of social policy at local, regional, state, and national levels as it pertains to culturally relevant mental health and health care services.
Engage in collaborative partnerships with other academic units and degree programs at UW Oshkosh, as well as with organizational entities in the Fox Valley region in order to improve community well being.
Engage in teaching, research, and evaluation activities that promote best practices in mental health and health care practice and encourage innovation and discovery to improve the well being of those in need.
