Department of Social Work

The Department of Social Work at California State University, Dominguez Hills is strategically located to focus on the diverse social service needs particular to South Los Angeles and the South Bay areas 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 prepares 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, through the framework of Critical Race Theory, the program aims at increasing students' understanding of the underlying causes resulting from intersecting effects of prejudice, discrimination, and oppression and teaches ways of identifying strategies and interventions for addressing these issues in social work practice.

CSUDH MSW Mission Statement

CSUDH MSW Program's mission is dedicated to the pursuit of a more just, global society through a critical, theoretical approach to social work education, research, and community-centered practice. Specifically, the program is dedicated to advancing anti-racist social work education that addresses societal dynamics stemming from intersectional oppression based on race, ethnicity, culture, gender, immigration, 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 and ethically deliver social work practice grounded in analysis, intervention, evaluation and advocacy, which addresses racial oppression and other forms of structural inequality to enhance the well-being of individuals, families and communities.
