The purpose of the CSUSM Pupil Personnel Services Credential (PPSC) is to prepare Master of Social Work (MSW) students to have the necessary knowledge and skills to be employed as competent school social workers (preschool through 12th grade) in California schools. MSW students who complete this credential are eligible to apply for the California State PPSC in two areas: 1) School Social Work, and 2) Child Welfare and Attendance. These credentials are awarded and administered through the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC).

The PPS program is integrated into the existing MSW program and requirements for the School Social Work credential are: (1) successful completion of field internship in a qualifying public school setting; and (2) successfully passing two school social work elective courses:

  • MSW 652 : Advanced Social Work Practice in Schools I
  • MSW 653 : Advanced Social Work Practice in Schools II
