Master of Social Work Program Requirements

The MSW Program offers an advanced concentration in empowerment practice across systems (individuals and families, small groups, and communities and organizations). Empowerment practice utilizes advanced critical thinking skills to assess the influence of multiple and interlocking personal, structural, and societal systems of power on vulnerable and oppressed populations. It incorporates the use of advanced social work theories and methodologies for culturally relevant assessment, intervention, and evaluation at multiple levels of complexity and across systems in order to promote human and social well-being.

The Department of Social Work offers four options for pursuing a Master of Social Work Degree:

1. The Full-Time MSW Program - This is a 60 hour program designed for students who are able to pursue full-time enrollment in graduate study over a period of two academic years beginning each August.

2. The Weekend MSW Program - This is a 60 hour program designed for working professionals who desire a weekend course schedule.  Graduate studies consist of intensive weekend course offerings and reduced weekly required field hours.  Classes meet one weekend each month.  Students enroll in classes over a period of three years beginning each August.

3. The Advanced Standing MSW Program (full time) - This is a 39 hour program designed for students who have previously earned a CSWE accredited bachelor’s degree in social work.  Enrollment is on a full-time basis for one calendar year beginning each May.
