Mission Statement

Campbellsville University’s Carver School of Social Work promotes academic excellence, leadership and personal growth in the spirit of Christian service. The BSW and MSW programs are grounded in the liberal arts and guided by the person-in-environment framework and global perspective. The purpose of the programs is to develop competent social workers with a strong sense of integrity, respect for human diversity, and commitment to the profession’s values. Carver School of Social Work values the dignity and worth of a person, human relationships and the pursuit for social and economic justice. Students learn a range of prevention and intervention skills based on scientific inquiry that guide their practice with diverse individuals, families, groups, organizations and communities. Through the application of ethical principles and critical thinking, the programs’ curricula encourages students to advance diversity, equity and inclusion, build resiliency and advocate for human rights at the micro, mezzo and macro levels. 

Program goals

Guided by the mission of this master’s program and influenced by the missions of Campbellsville University, the social work profession and the needs of the local, regional, state and international communities, the MSW program strives to attain the following goals:

  1. To prepare competent and effective graduate level social work professionals to empower, lead and serve as practitioners, service coordinators, service administrators, policy analysts’ and program developers.
  2. To equip graduates with graduate level social work knowledge, values, and skills in preparation for service with diverse, at-risk, marginalized, oppressed populations which exist in rural, urban, national and international locations;
  3. To prepare graduate level social work practitioners that are skilled in evaluating and linking empirical knowledge, social work practice wisdom, social research and practice outcomes;
  4. To stimulate a desire within graduates for the pursuit of life-long-learning and Christ centered service.

These program goals build on a foundation of generalist content and expand toward the preparation of advanced level social workers. As such, a foundation curriculum, similar to that of the undergraduate program is provided in the first year of this master’s program; however, the foundation graduate year incorporates graduate level rigor in research activities and learning assignments.
