"Loma Linda University’s MSW program empowered me to look within myself in order to establish my identity of not only who I am as a person but who I am as a professional. LLU provided a high-quality education as well as an in-depth internship experience. The faculty are invested in their students and partners with them to ensure that they are encouraged, challenged, and celebrated throughout their program. I graduated feeling established, grounded and confident in who I am as a clinician."

"The three years I spent as an MSW/CJ student at LLU are years I will never forget. The opportunity to earn masters degrees I'm both social work and criminal justice was the reason I chose the program originally and it has made me more competitive no competent in the field. I learned so much clinically through both my classes and my internships. The education I received there has made me a well-rounded clinician and has given me a great foundation for beginning the licensure process. The professors were kind, intelligent, and creative, and they helped by individualizing their approaches for me when it would help me learn more. I was able to come to any of them with any problems personal or professional. I can't imagine going anywhere else!"

"I cannot say enough about my educational experience at LLU. Not only was I prepared exceptionally for the work I do now as a psychotherapist with Los Angeles County, but I was also challenged to develop personally and spiritually. The guidance my advisor provided was priceless, ensuring that I was on track for success throughout my entire program and working hard to see that I was placed in internships that allowed me the greatest opportunity for professional growth. My advisor made possible the successful completion of a dual master's program within two years. I am now an LCSW and often reflect on my graduate experience as a major turning point in my life. I am proud to be an LLU alum!"
