About the M.S.W. Program
COMMITTED AND ACCREDITED
For over 20 years, Grand Valley’s Master of Social Work (M.S.W.) program has been preparing social work professionals for advanced practice in direct service and in the administration of social welfare policies and programs in Northern Michigan.
The M.S.W. is a long-term CSWE accredited program that offers outstanding instructors and local internship opportunities in Northern Michigan.
CLASSES WHERE YOU LIVE AND WORK
The M.S.W. program is part-time and designed to fit the busy schedules of working adults. This is a hybrid format (face-to-face as well as online), but the bulk of the learning will be face-to-face on the campus of Lake Superior State University (LSSU) in Sault Ste. Marie. One course will be offered online.
