Master of Social Work

TSU-MSW Program

THE MISSION

The Tennessee State University Master of Social Work (TSU-MSW) Program is dedicated to the enhancement of human well-being, diversity, and social justice through developing and improving systems of public social services, especially for the vulnerable and oppressed, by offering graduate training in Social Work with a hybrid model of delivery. We offer students several different ways to fulfill the requirements of an MSW degree, which can be completed either full or part time.

ACCREDITATION

CSWE LogoThe Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) is the national accrediting body for professional social work programs in higher education. The TSU-MSW Program was accredited as part of the MTC-MSW Progam, a collaborative in Middle Tennessee. When the MTC-MSW Program dissolved in August 2021, the TSU-MSW Program sought single accreditation through the CSWE. In February 2022, the CSWE will review the TSU-MSW Pogram self-study to determine accreditation status. It is important that your degree be accredited by the CSWE, as this accreditation of your degree is one requirement for licensure as a future social worker.
