Affirming Social Justice
The social work and criminal justice faculty and staff are committed to social justice as the foundation for engaging with our students, one another, and the communities we serve. Our core values include:
Empowering individuals as change agents;
Reducing systemic and societal barriers that impede individuals from achieving their full potential;
Fostering a community that promotes critical self-reflection, discovery, and action;
Engaging micro and macro practice to advocate and achieve a more compassionate and equitable society.
UW Tacoma's part-time, evening Master of Social Work (MSW) programs seek to enroll well-qualified students with diverse backgrounds. We especially seek applicants who are committed to work with diverse populations.
The Social Welfare major is dedicated to preparing competent, ethical, and culturally sensitive social workers with specialized knowledge and skills who are committed to evidence-based practice and to planned social change.
The innovative Criminal Justice major uses a social justice lens focusing on harm reduction, rehabilitative and restorative approaches to crime and justice. Complete your degree on-campus or 100% online.
