APPLY TO MESSIAH

Nationally Accredited

National Accreditation

The Department recently became re-accredited by the CSWE. This is an honor and a privilege that our school has. Our students that graduate with the BSW degree may then be able to move forward in graduate school and apply for the advanced standing program only needing to complete one year of graduate school. We have now been accredited for several years and are excited about the preparation that each student has upon graduating.


The Department is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE).

Advantages of Attending a Nationally Accredited School of Social Work for one’s Bachelors of Social Work (BSW) degree includes:

  • Messiah University offers a quality education that meets or exceeds CSWE Accreditation Standards. This demonstrates that Messiah University educates students following standards developed by the Council of Social Work Education.
  • Students may obtain Advanced Standing in graduate schools of social work to obtain a Master of Social Work (MSW) degree in one year.
