Social Justice and Social Work (MA/MSW)

Recognizing that social work and social justice often inform one another and overlap in terms of content and philosophy, Loyola's School of Social Work (SSW) and Institute of Pastoral Studies (IPS) offer the MSW/MA in Social Justice.

This program is ideal for those who see a role for themselves in an organization that serves individuals and communities or advocates for social change. The MSW/MASJ stresses collaborative and community work at the mezzo and macro levels. As such, the MSW/MASJ seeks to create leaders for transformational organizations in local and global communities while also providing a solid theoretical basis for the work of change.
