Social Work Program Mission
The Minot State University Social Work Program, through a person-in-environment perspective and a strengths based approach; integrates the values, knowledge, and skills fundamental to competent generalist Social Work practice into an academic setting that empowers baccalaureate students to promote human and community well-being on both a global scale and in the rural practice community.

Throughout its three program options in North Dakota, Minot State University Social Work students learn the values of the Social Work Profession through a curriculum which prepares them to advocate for human rights and social justice, elevate the importance of human relationships, promote the elimination of poverty, ensure the dignity and worth of the person, respect diversity, and exhibit service, integrity, competence, and scientific inquiry.

Generalist Practice Perspective
The generalist practice model of the social work program prepares students to apply an eclectic knowledge base, professional social work values and ethics and a range of culturally competent skills, using ecological and strengths-based perspectives to individuals, groups and organizations.
