Cutting-edge social work education.

If you've read our mission, you know we're here to make a difference. Individuals, families, groups, and communities are suffering, and we aim to prevent and solve social problems affecting their health and well-being. So you can have that impact. Our curriculum focuses on evidence-based practice approaches redefining social work and health and mental health care. And then, we continue to stay in touch with emerging practice trends to ensure our graduates have the knowledge and skills needed to provide high-quality clinical social work services. 

Mutual Investment.

An MSW degree requires an investment of time, energy, and financial resources. It's a challenging undertaking that requires sacrifice and commitment. But as you invest in yourself, we walk right alongside you, engaging in ways you won't see other places, helping you reach your full potential as a clinical social worker. So as you invest in yourself, we invest in you. A partnership that will pay off in a rewarding career for you as well as healthier, higher functioning, and more equitable communities in Montana, the nation, and worldwide. 

New, but here for 113 years.

We may be a new MSW program, but Carroll College has served Montana, the Western U.S. region, and the nation since 1909. Our College mission emphasizes vocation, enlightenment, critical inquiry, authentic dialogue, and the greater good. And the mission is brought to life on a campus where we challenge, inspire, and support each other daily. So while our MSW program is new and cutting edge, it's also solidly built on a foundation of academic excellence. 

But don't take out words for it. U.S. News consistently recognizes Carroll College, Colleges of Distinction, and College Consensus for academic excellence, values, and the accomplishments of our alumni. To learn more about these distinctions, go here. As a new graduate program at Carroll College, the MSW Program is committed to upholding and extending this legacy of excellence while creating transformational moments for our students. 

Saint for life.

Because changing the world takes support, the Carroll Social Work community is here for you, wherever you land. We're committed to your success, so you can lean on us as you pursue licensure, go for that dream job, or as you show up every day to fight for social and economic justice on behalf of vulnerable and underserved communities.
