MSW at Carthage College

The MSW Program at Carthage College is no longer accepting applications for admissions.

Established in 1914, Loyola's School of Social Work offers a premier clinical social work program with a comprehensive focus on families, children, and mental health. Loyola's mission is to educate students to understand the diversity of the community and to respond to human needs within that context.

The Loyola MSW at Carthage represents the best of both worlds: a large university's faculty and curriculum and a small college's service and responsiveness. The program prepares students with the skills needed to work on behalf of individuals, families, and small groups in a variety of settings. The program is available in a traditional format, which can be completed in 26 months, and an advanced standing format which can be completed in 14 months. Fieldwork is also a critical component to the program, giving students professional experience in a social work setting.
