Dr. Linwood Cousins, Interim Director

Greetings from the School of Social Work at Western Michigan University. We invite you to peruse our website whether to learn about our undergraduate and graduate programs, fill out an application or learn about our research and many other things about the School of Social Work in general.

Our BSW and MSW programs are nationally accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE), and we are ranked among the top 100 social work programs in the U.S. Indeed, we have a nearly 50 year legacy of training BSW and MSW students who serve as leaders and professional practitioners in numerous human service settings locally, regionally and across the U.S.

If you are interested in applying to our graduate or undergraduate programs, or if you have questions you would like to ask about social work, our school or our university, please feel free to contact us. And if you would like to support the work of the school financially or otherwise, contact us or click here.
