The Weekend Advanced Standing MSW Program is a 39 credit program available to applicants who have a Bachelor of Social Work degree from a Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) accredited college or university. This is a 39 hour program designed for working professionals who have previously earned a CSWE accredited bachelor’s degree in social work and desire a weekend course schedule. The Program is completed over two calendar years in the weekend format. Classes meet one weekend each month. Students enroll in classes over a period of two years beginning each August. The Program offers a concentration in Empowerment Practice across systems (individuals and families; small groups; and communities and organizations).
Because each course in the Weekend Program consists of five intensive class meeting days, students are expected to attend all classes. Students who are absent for more than the equivalent of one day of class in a course will not receive credit for the course. Absences must be requested through the course instructor. Because courses are sequenced, the need to re-take a course can delay a student’s progression through the Program.
