Claire Argow Social Work Program
The BSW and Advanced Standing MSW program is offered at our Forest Grove campus, just outside of Portland, Oregon. The 2-year and Advanced Standing MSW program is offered at our Eugene campus. Our campus locations offer opportunities to learn and practice social work in a rural or urban setting. Pacific’s social work program is known for its individualized instruction and face-to-face mentoring from professors. We have a low student to faculty ratio, and focus on building a cohort of students prepared to become leaders in practice, policy, and research.
Students in Pacific’s Social Work program will experience teaching and learning in a close, nurturing environment. Professors create exceptional opportunities for professional growth and work with students to foster interprofessional relationships at both the bachelor and master’s level. Our faculty come from a wide variety of professional and academic backgrounds with a range of expertise in areas such as; homeless and runaway youth, suicide, gerontology, LGBTQ youth, medical social work, psychotherapy, international social work, and indigenous communities.
Pacific's Social Work program is named for former Pacific University professor and prisoners rights advocate Claire Argow.
