Interactive Map of State & Province Certification Requirements for Social Work

Social work licensing goes by a variety of acronyms: LCSW, PIP, SWP, LICSW, CSW, LSW, CMSW, LMSW, and many more. To earn one of these licenses, most states or provinces require that you earn a Master of Social Work (MSW) from a CSWE-accredited school. Licensure provides a wealth of opportunities for practicing social workers. You can read more about it in our blog: Social Work Licensure – To license or not to license?

If you’re looking into our program with the intention of applying for licensure, we recommend that you first review the specific requirements for the state or province you want to practice in by clicking on that state or province in the map below.
