Program Description:

Loyola’s School of Social Work was founded in 1914. Throughout its history, the School has been dedicated to clinical social work, preparing career-minded students through scholarship and the development of direct practice skills.

As the first program of its kind in the mainland U.S., the ONLINE BILINGUAL (Spanish) MSW is aimed at filling a critical need gap. Primarily, the degree program will help equip practitioners with the skills and knowledge to address the unmet integrated mental health needs of Latinx, immigrant, and refugee populations. Whether persons are experiencing barriers due to lack of linguistically and culturally appropriate services, professional shortages, transportation, or insurance coverage, the program will prepare graduates to remove these barriers to service and become a force for justice.
