MSW courses provide two levels of competencies, namely Foundation and Concentration.
SW 510: Social policy and services (5)Concentration
Students in the MSW program take a series of courses in a concentration. The MSW program at CSUB uses an advanced generalist model, so all students take a series of concentration courses toward advanced generalist practice.
SW 610: Advanced Social Policy and Services (5)Elective course work
The MSW course of study includes at least 10 units of elective courses approved by the department. Students who receive special funding are required to take electives associated with their special funding.
In conjunction with the field practicum, each student completes a "portfolio" paper as a culminating experience.
