The Mission of the Asbury University M.S.W. program arises from a belief in the inherent worth and dignity of all persons. This belief is sustained by the University's commitment to historic orthodox Christianity as expressed in the Wesleyan tradition's core emphases on personal and social holiness. This results in love for all persons individually and for the world, with particular concern for the poor, the vulnerable and the exploited. This informs our passion to seek justice and an understanding that God's grace provides all persons with transforming potential.
Graduates will be prepared for theologically informed advanced social work practice in national and global contexts that are agency or church-based.
