Life is messy. Solving complex problems is what social workers do best. If you are interested in a versatile career helping diverse people, organizations, and communities in innovative ways, join us and learn more about the exciting new Master of Social Work (MSW) degree at Ball State.

The biggest areas of job growth in the US are in the clinical management of addictions, supporting aging baby boomers (gerontology), and managing optimal health. Ball State’s MSW curriculum focuses on all three within the context of rural communities.

As the only Advanced Generalist MSW in Indiana, students will have advanced clinical AND management training—especially focused on rural communities where social workers need to be leaders with a diverse set of skills. You will be immersed in clinical addictions, gerontology, and health coursework. You will learn best practices in management, program development, non-profit budgeting, fundraising, personnel management, and leadership.

Situated in the College of Health, the MSW Program will be housed in a $62 million new Health Professions Building with sim lab, community-based clinic, and dedicated social work skills labs. Ball State's beautiful campus has top-notch technology resources, and is highly adaptable for those with special needs.

Learn about our flexible evening course offerings delivered using a blended format—on campus classes that alternate weeks online and face-to-face. If you are a busy working professional, we have a plan that will work for your schedule. Learn about the full-time and part-time options for completing the MSW in three semesters (full time) or up to three years (part-time).

During our information sessions, you will learn about the following:

  • Career options and credentialing available with a MSW
  • Advanced Standing and Traditional Standing MSW options
  • Application process for Graduate School and MSW Program
  • Tips for making your MSW application stand out

We hope to hear from you soon!  #BallStateMSW #chirpchirp #wefly
