Customize your MSW experience with a Specialization

Specializations are offered across all of our MSW programs for both clinical and macro majors. While you are not required to specialize, you may choose to focus on one particular area, based on availability within your program plan.

The four specialization options include:

  • Aging
  • Behavioral Health
  • Children, Youth and Families
  • Trauma, Violence and Justice

Pursuing a specialization helps you deepen your knowledge and expertise through advanced elective courses and a field placement in your focus area. Keep reading for descriptions and program-specific requirements, plus who to contact if you have any questions.
