Our rigorous MSW programs will prepare you to take innovative, effective action to empower those in need and to bring greater equality to vulnerable populations.
All four concentrations require a field placement in addition to specialized coursework.
If work or family commitments make it difficult to pursue full time study, our Three- & Four-Year Programs allow you to pursue your degree at a more flexible pace. You can begin the Three-Year Program at our main campus in Chestnut Hill or at our off-campus location in Worcester but must complete your final year of coursework in Chestnut Hill. Your field work, however, may continue in a geographical location that is closer to your residence.
If you want to combine social work with a career in law, business, or pastoral ministry, you can earn a dual degree.
If you have MSW course or fieldwork credits, you may be eligible to apply as an advanced standing and transfer student.
