The Master of Social Work (MSW) program at Cal U will hold an open house from 6-7:30 p.m. Nov. 29 in the Kara Alumni House on campus.

Anyone interested in learning more about the program or the benefits of an advanced degree in social work may register for the free event.

Cal U’s MSW program is fully accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE), the only accrediting body for social work education programs at the bachelor's and master's degree levels.

Students have several routes to degree completion: 

  • Full time: By enrolling in Cal U’s full-time program, students can earn the Master of Social Work degree in two years.
  • Part time: Cal U offers a part-time MSW program that can be completed in three years. 
  • Advanced standing: Cal U offers an advanced-standing program for those students with bachelor's degrees in social work from CSWE-accredited programs.

Responding to the region’s needs, the MSW program at Cal U emphasizes small town and rural social work.

The MSW degree from California University of Pennsylvania prepares you to work as a social worker anywhere in the world,” says Dr. Norma Thomas, director for the MSW program at Cal U. 

“But if learning with an emphasis on small towns and other rural environments especially appeals to you, then the MSW degree at Cal U is one you definitely should consider.”

To register for the open house, or for more information about the MSW program, contact program secretary Tammy DeRocco at 724-938-4022 or
