NNU's Master of Social Work Program

Depending on education, and licensure, students can be admitted either at the Generalist level or at the Specialized level for the master's in social work degree. Both levels utilize a cohort model that allows for an interactive learning environment and collegiality throughout the student's course work.

You can work on your MSW on NNU's Nampa, Idaho campus—just 20 minutes from downtown Boise—or through our distance learning location in Idaho Falls.

The master's in social work practicums will help you build relationships with local professionals that will assist you now and after graduation. Among other places, our students have worked in schools, hospitals and mental health clinics in Nampa and Boise. We'll also help you get the certification you need to work independently after graduation.
