Welcome to the Department of Social Work!
The California State University East Bay (CSUEB), Master of Social Work program's philosophy and curriculum are grounded in the reality of an urban environment. We graduate social justice focused, multiculturally competent urban practitioners. The Department of Social Work at CSUEB is strategically established to address the diverse social work needs and problems particular to urban, multicultural and multiracial populations, including issues of poverty, discrimination, racism, sexism, ageism, classism, abelism, homophobia and other forms of injustice.
The mission of the Master of Social Work (MSW) program is to prepare advanced practitioners in Children, Youth and Families (CYF) or Community Mental Health (CMH) who will serve diverse, multicultural and multiracial communities. We offer a two year full time program in Hayward and a three year part time program in Oakland.
