Discover professional skills you need to change lives
At Herzing University, our priority is people. We have spent many years developing nursing and healthcare curriculums to equip students with the knowledge and skills to become successful health practitioners.
How we think about whole health is evolving in terms of individuals and their respective families and communities. Nearly one in five U.S. adults live with some form of mental illness,1 and the COVID-19 pandemic dramatically increased the prevalence of anxiety and depression.2
Mental health and social justice issues have become too pervasive to ignore, negatively impacting health across patient populations. Understanding how humans behave in response to environmental and social change is crucial to facilitating better health outcomes. We must adapt.
That’s why we are committing to the discipline of behavioral health by offering our new Master of Social Work (MSW) degree program.
Join our mission to prioritize people and begin making a real, substantive impact for individuals and their communities—and start a rewarding, gratifying career path.
