George Mason's accredited Master of Social Work (MSW) program, which began in the fall of 2002, prepares students for advanced social work practice. Our MSW program provides students with an initial Generalist year, followed by a year of Specialized study. Students have the option of enrolling under a two-year, three-year, or four-year plan. Those who have earned a BSW degree from a CSWE-accredited program may qualify for the Advanced Standing program.
Older adults are the fastest growing sector of today’s population. The interdisciplinary nature of gerontology makes this graduate certificate ideal for students interested in pursuing or advancing careers as an elder law attorney, a certified geriatric pharmacist, a strategic policy analyst, an educational gerontologist, and much more. This certificate will provide you with important knowledge and skills to better serve the older adult population.
