Social Work in Pursuit of Social Justice
The School of Social Work has been strengthening communities in Washington, DC, since its founding in 1935. The Howard online MSW program continues that mission, preparing aspiring social workers for advanced professional practice in direct clinical and macro environments.
We see people, not pathologies. Through research, practice and advocacy, Howard-prepared social workers transform systems of injustice and affirm the strengths of Black people, culturally diverse populations, and others who experience oppression.
Our online MSW curriculum is grounded in the Black Perspective. We challenge students to examine the ways in which oppression, segregation, self-determination and culture inform our service to individuals and communities.
We offer two concentrations: Direct Practice — which will prepare you to work directly with clients, families and groups — and Community, Administration and Policy Practice — which will prepare you to advocate for communities at the macro level. Complete full time in as few as 12 months.
