The EWU School of Social Work offers the only publicly sponsored Master of Social Work (MSW) program in Eastern Washington. Organized in the 1950's the School offers the Bachelor of Social Work (BASW) at the EWU main campus in Cheney and at our off-campus program in Vancouver, WA. The MSW is offered at the EWU main campuses in Cheney and Spokane (Riverpoint campus) and at our off-campus programs in Vancouver and Everett Washington. The BASW and the MSW programs are fully accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE).

Our undergraduate and foundation graduate courses emphasize student-centered learning of the values, knowledge and skills needed by professional social workers to engage, assess, intervene and evaluate with individuals, families, organizations or society.  At the graduate level students broaden their understanding of the individual, group, community, and societal context of social work practice, and select additional courses to deepen knowledge and skills in one or more of the following areas of practice: aging, palliative care, disabilities, public health, mental health, addiction, school social work, and child welfare.  

Undergraduate and graduate social work students engage in practicum placements in social welfare agencies and organizations located throughout the state, working alongside professional social workers and learning the roles and activities associated with the requisite competencies of professional practice. Practicum and seminars conducted in the final year of study connect the knowledge, skills, and values learned in the classroom with the real world experienced in agencies.

They help individuals and families deal with crises as well as the everyday challenges of life. They help organizations work more effectively and efficiently to fulfill agency missions and meet goals. They promote societal change to improve the lives of all people.
