The School of Social Work has partnered with two departments at Illinois State University to offer Graduate Certificates.
Women and Gender Studies (WGS) is partner with us to offer Social Work with a WGS Graduate Certificate. The graduate certificate is a perfect match for Social Work students interested in social issues that affect women, children, and families daily. The topics explored in the WGS graduate certificate relate directly to our practice, and help to increase cultural competency. Please click on the WGS Certificate link for more information.
Students who pursue the Gerontology concentration in the MSW program will also qualify for the Graduate Certificate in the Social Aspects of Aging from the Department of Sociology and Anthropology. Some of the coursework, including electives, draw from a cross-disciplinary curriculum. In addition to course work that is specific to gerontology, students will complete their advanced practicum in an agency setting with older adults.

For any more questions on obtaining a Graduate Certificate, please contact your MSW Advisor.
