Our Program

A Social Work Degree With a Social Justice Focus

We’re ranked among the nation’s top 20 social work graduate programs, and for good reason. At the Graduate School of Social Work (GSSW), teaching and research are shaped and guided by our social justice mandate and the needs of our community. Our small classes and 11:1 student–faculty ratio mean you’ll develop close research and scholarship collaborations with faculty mentors. Individual career planning and support services will help you realize your ambitions, and a range of organizations, activities and events — from the Shades of Brown Alliance for individuals of color and allies, to the Catalyst Series for Social Justice — will provide opportunities to connect outside of the classroom.

We offer two Denver Campus master of social work (MSW) program options: the Two-Year MSW Program and the Advanced-Standing MSW Program. With eight degree concentrations to choose from, you’ll be prepared for countless career paths in a field that is adding jobs faster than most others.
