About California State University, Dominguez Hills Department of Social Work
Master of Social Work Program
The Department of Social Work Program at California State University, Dominguez Hills is strategically located to focus on the diverse social service needs and problems particular to the South Bay area of Los Angeles County, a large metropolitan area, populated by a wide range of socially and culturally diverse people. Because of the diversity of the various ethnic groups and cultures, the program will prepare social work students for contextually competent social work practice, inclusive of issues of culture, race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, class and gender differences, religion and the effects of bias, prejudice and institutionalized racism. These issues and concerns often obscure helping efforts if they are not appropriately recognized and dealt with in practice and in social policy development and implementation. Thus, the program aims at increasing students’ understanding of the underlying causes resulting from intersecting effects of prejudice, discrimination, and stereotyping and teaches ways of identifying strategies and interventions for addressing these concerns and problems in social work practice.
The CSUDH MSW Program... is dedicated to the pursuit of a more just, global society through education, scholarship, research, and community practice addressing societal dynamics stemming from the intersection of race/ethnicity, culture, gender, immigration and socio-economic status, and membership in other categories historically subjected to oppression, discrimination, and indifference. Located in a diverse, complex urban setting, the program prepares Master level social workers to professionally deliver social work practice grounded in critical theoretical approaches that address oppression and structural inequality to enhance the well-being of individuals, families, and communities.
