Capstone Project

MSW Research Symposium

Your chance to demonstrate mastery of the social work competencies.

UW-Green Bay MSW students prepare a capstone project that is grounded in research, theory, values, and practice-based knowledge. This project is delivered as a poster presentation at the end of their final year in the program.

Poster Presentations

The Capstone Project for the UW-Green Bay MSW Program is derived from the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) competencies of which all students graduating from accredited social work programs must demonstrate mastery. Posters are presented in a public forum and, as such, help students meet Competencies one, three, and four:

  • Competency 1: Demonstrate Ethical and Professional Behavior
  • Competency 3: Advance Human Rights and Social, Economic, and Environmental Justice
  • Competency 4: Engage in Practice-Informed Research and Research-informed Practice

The Symposium is a public event, held at the end of the spring semester, during which graduating MSW students display their unique professional accomplishments through the Poster presentation.

MSW Capstone Project Archive

The Cofrin Library serves as a digital repository for graduate level capstone projects, such as the Symposium posters. Archiving the posters gives current and future students the opportunity to access high-quality research conducted by MSW students.
