Become a Competent Leader in the Social Work Field
At Lancaster Bible College | Capital Seminary & Graduate School, we recognize the need for competently trained social workers to serve in the Church and society, focusing on the needs of the vulnerable, marginalized and oppressed. Whether through direct practice or in administration, social workers serve a vital role in the global community. If you are passionate about this field, the MSW program at LBC | Capital may be for you!
LBC | Capital’s MSW program exists to equip graduate social work students to serve society and the Church through advanced social work practice within the purpose and values of the social work profession and the context of a biblical worldview. Through experiential learning in the field and cohort learning, you will enrich the social work field. Now is the time for competent leadership within the field, strengthening organizations and communities.
Two specializations are offered within the MSW program:
The MSW program can be taken either a 100% online or blended (a combination of in-person and remote learning), which allows students the flexibility to complete their studies around their learning style and busy schedule.

“Each and every person has strengths, resources, and wonderful capacities which guide their narrative, despite the many adversities that exist in life. Helping students become comfortable with owning and sharing their story allows Christ to use them in a redemptive manner, joining with the stories of their clients.” — Dr. MillerRead Bio

The MSW program at LBC | Capital is currently applying for Pre-Candidacy Status for Accreditation by the Council on Social Work Education’s Commission on Accreditation.
Pre-Candidacy for a baccalaureate or master’s social work program by the Council on Social Work Education’s Commission on Accreditation indicates that it has submitted an application to be reviewed for Candidacy. A program that has attained Pre-Candidacy has not yet been reviewed by the Commission on Accreditation or been verified to be in compliance with the Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards. The Council on Social Work Education does not publicly disclose whether programs have currently attained Pre-Candidacy Status until they are granted Candidacy.
Students who enter the program while it is still in Pre-Candidacy will not be recognized as attending a program in Candidacy unless the program attains Candidacy in the academic year in which those students enter. The Candidacy Process is typically a three-year process and there is no guarantee that a program in Pre-Candidacy will eventually attain Candidacy or Initial Accreditation. Students who enter programs that attain Candidacy in or before the academic year in which they begin their program of study will be retroactively recognized as having graduated from a CSWE-accredited program once the program attains Initial Accreditation. Candidacy by the Council on Social Work Education’s Commission on Accreditation applies to all program sites and program delivery methods of an accredited program. Accreditation provides reasonable assurance about the quality of the program and the competence of students graduating from the program.
