Leadership and Social Change Concentration

Our iMSW Program consists of a diverse, non-traditional group of individuals with varied experiences and professional backgrounds who wish to develop their skills and further their knowledge in social work. The program affords students the opportunity to obtain their MSW degree on a part-time basis through fully online courses with weekly Zoom sessions during the evening. This model allows students to remain full-time employment while pursuing their MSW degree.

Leadership and Social Change Concentration

The Leadership and Social Change (LSC) concentration prepares social work students to further  their careers by developing advanced skills in macro practice.  Since the social work profession has a long tradition of working towards improving conditions of disadvantaged populations through advocacy efforts with political officials and others, this concentration will prepare students for macro-level advanced practice. These skills can lead to positions, such as, policy advocate, program director, executive director, political strategist, supervisor, administrator, public service leader, strategic planner, or consultant
