Tulane University has built its Master of Social Work program on the foundation of its century-long experience training social workers in New Orleans. In other words, New Orleans’ unique resilience in facing disaster, its creativity and innovation, and its open and indefatigable activist community are all written indelibly into our curriculum. Tulane’s MSW program fits into students’ lives, because it’s adaptable to their interests. Students are empowered to apply their coursework to areas of social work that interest them most. For instance, an MSW candidate that is interested in school social work can choose adolescents as the focus of a human behavior assignment or indigenous communities as the focus of a diversity and social justice assignment. The coursework is structured in a way that you have the option of starting to refine your specialization as you go through the generalist curriculum.
