Social Work in Action.

Dominican University’s Graduate School of Social Work challenges you to change the world by helping you obtain the skills you need to make a difference. Accredited by the Council on Social Work Education, we prepare professional social workers for globally-focused, family-centered practice. Our mission guides us to advocate for human rights, social and economic justice for all persons and promote human and community well being.

We aspire to be an innovative global leader in social work through inquiry-based education, ethical engagement, commitment to positive social transformation and through unmatched opportunities for local, national and international field placements and externships.

For MSW Seekers

Our nationally recognized Master of Social Work has set the standard for programs in the Chicago area in extending the discipline to international communities. In addition, three available concentrations in the in-demand specializations of gerontology, military social work and school social work will prepare you to meet the unique challenges facing these populations.

We also offer dual master's degree programs with our Brennan School of Business (MSW/MBA) and Graduate School of Library and Information Science (MSW/MLIS).

For Professional Social Workers

Dominican offers post-MSW certificates in gerontology, working with the military and social work in schools (formerly Type 73 certification) as well as CEU's through our Center for Professional Excellence.
