Thank you for your interest in Missouri Western’s Social Work Program! The baccalaureate social work program is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE), our national regulatory body. Accreditation means that our social work program meets CSWE’s high standards and effectively prepares students for beginning-level careers as social workers. Social work programs are accredited only after a lengthy period of self-study, an on-site visit by a team of social work educators, and a review by the Commission on Accreditation. CSWE has recognized the quality of Missouri Western’s Social Work Program since 1979.

We look forward to talking with you further about the social work program and about social work as a career. This website is designed to provide current and prospective students with a wealth of information about the social work profession and Missouri Western’s Social Work Program. We also encourage you to discuss social work career opportunities with one of our faculty members. We are located in the Department of Criminal Justice, Legal Studies and Social Work in Wilson Hall 204. Again, welcome to social work!
