NNU’s Department of Social Work offers both a B.A. in Social Work and a 63-credit MSW degree. Both programs are fully accredited by the Council on Social Work Education. There are approximately 225 students and eight full-time faculty members. The B.A. program focuses on generalist SW practice and the MSW program has two concentrations: mental health/additions and an integrated clinical macro track. The MSW program is a vibrant face-to-face program in Nampa and a thriving video conferencing cohort in Idaho Falls. The social work department has strong relationships with social work agencies in the communities surrounding both sites and students complete 500 hours in generalized placements and 600 hours in specialized placements.
