The Springfield College School of Social Work prepares students for practice with individuals, families, groups, organizations and communities in a variety of areas such as adult mental health, child welfare/child mental health, school social work and gerontology and for direct practice, supervision, administration and public policy-making activities. Since 1989, the master of social work program has been continuously accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE).
Participants have many choices for field internship assignments at agencies throughout New England and New York. The field education program is structured around four areas of learning to ensure students gain experience in developing a full range of advanced generalist social work skills, including direct service with individuals, group work, community development and organization and administration and organizational development.
