The MSW Program at SJSU was founded in 1969 and was originally designed to educate and train social workers to work with Spanish speaking populations in California. We currently have three MSW Program models. In each model, the curriculum prepares students for professional practice, and enables them to work competently with Latinos, other minority groups, and those communities, groups, families, and individuals who are disenfranchised, oppressed, and/or marginalized.
The program uses a cohort-based enrollment and learning strategy, in which students
progress take foundation year classes with the same group of students. For further details on the program, review the MSW Program Handbook.
