1 School of Behavioral and Applied Sciences Master of Social Work

2 Master of Social Work Why Social Work? Social workers help people manage and overcome some of life s most difficult challenges, such as poverty, addiction, discrimination, physical and mental illness, and abuse. They provide individual, family, and group therapy; facilitate crisis prevention and intervention; advocate and participate in political action; and collaborate with communities to develop necessary social and economic resources. Social workers are especially committed to advancing social justice and increasing opportunities for vulnerable populations. Settings in which social workers practice include: Mental health agencies Schools Counseling centers Child welfare agencies Adoption/foster agencies Hospitals International social work agencies Violence prevention/victim assistance Older adult services Probation and parole agencies Political advocacy Employee assistance programs Mission Statement The Master of Social Work program in the Department of Social Work at Azusa Pacific University seeks to develop competent advanced social work practitioners who can integrate the knowledge, values, and skills of social work to advance social justice and provide services to assist individuals, families, groups, organizations, and communities. Grounded in the profession s Code of Ethics and sensitivity to diversity, the MSW program is committed to excellence in its teaching and scholarship, the integration of faith and learning, the development of professional leadership, and the strengthening of communities in local, national, and international contexts. Why APU? Founded in 1899 as the Training School for Christian Workers, Azusa Pacific remains dedicated to its core mission preparing men and women for Christian service. APU s MSW program offers the advanced training necessary for professional social work practice, including preparation for the licensure most states require. Program distinctives include: A wide range of internship opportunities in Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino, and Riverside counties Diverse faculty with extensive experience in a variety of social work settings Strong clinical training and interdisciplinary knowledge base Full- and part-time Advanced Standing options Professional leadership development Faith integration relevant to social work practice Small class sizes Program Goals The following outcomes reflect the mission statement and purposes of social work education congruent with accreditation standards: Graduates will exhibit competence in generalist and advanced social work practice with diverse individuals, families, groups, organizations, and communities, including appropriate uses of supervision, consultation, and discernment, to seek necessary organizational change. Graduates will demonstrate knowledge, built on a liberal arts foundation, of the history of the social work profession and empirically supported theoretical frameworks that provide understanding of individual development and behavior across the life span and interactions among and between individuals and families, groups, organizations, and communities. Graduates will demonstrate critical thinking skills, skills related to the effective integration of research in practice, and adequate preparation for leadership, advanced study, and lifelong learning. Graduates will demonstrate knowledge and skills to partner with communities to advocate for the development of policies and programs that seek to advance human rights and well-being, promote social and economic justice, empower clients, and respect diversity. Graduates will practice according to the values and ethics of the profession and understand the ethical integration of Christian faith in practice, including nondiscrimination in the areas of age, class, color, culture, disability, ethnicity, family structure, gender, marital status, national origin, race, religion, sex, and sexual orientation. Faculty will engage in ongoing scholarship reflecting the goals and needs of professional social work practice. Application Deadlines Early Admission: January 15 Regular Admission: March 1 Advanced Standing: January 15 Learn More: apu.edu/msw Audrey Tuey, MSW 13 // Assessment and Referral Specialist, Canyon Ridge Hospital The decision to pursue my MSW degree at APU was probably the best decision I could have made for my education and career. Not only did APU offer exceptional academic and internship experiences, but it provided me with many opportunities to learn about myself and continue my personal growth. The support that I received from my cohort and the professors helped me to be confident in my internship and led me to the job I currently have. Looking back, I now understand why God wanted me to be at APU.

6 Jesse J. Montes, MSW 10, LCSW // Metropolitan State Hospital, California Department of Mental Health My experience at Azusa Pacific University was wonderful. APU faculty really cared about providing students with a high-quality education and internship. The knowledge and skills I gained at APU have been invaluable to me in my current profession as a clinical social worker. I appreciate my education at APU and recommend the program to others. Ruben Lara, MSW 13, LMSW // Intensive In-Home Therapist, KVC Health Systems, Topeka, KS APU has developed a strong MSW program that pushed me to my full potential in the field of social work at both micro and macro levels. The faculty provided a genuine sense of guidance and support that I will never forget. I have grown as a social worker and developed confidence behind my clinical skills, which allowed me to obtain my current employment prior to graduation. Victoria Curtin, MSW 10 // HUD-VASH Social Worker, Department of Veterans Affairs APU s MSW program provided me such a great opportunity to grow not only as a social worker, but as an individual. The small class sizes and experienced faculty allowed me to receive an education that prepared me to handle the real-life situations of a social worker.
