Full-time MSW Program

In our full-time, two-year MSW program, you will complete a rigorous curriculum, gain valuable experience through field education, select an area of specialized practice, and choose a field of practice. You will also be able to pursue one or more certificates to further individualize your degree.

Throughout the program, you will benefit from the support and guidance of professors, advisors, staff, and alumni on courses, placements, careers, and more.

Foundation Year

During your first year, all clinical and macro MSW students take eight foundation and specialized practice courses that provide a theoretical, practice, policy, and research foundation for more advanced coursework. 

In addition to your time in the classroom, you will also spend two days in the field—usually Monday and Tuesday—for a total of 16 hours per week.

By the end of your first semester, you will select a field of practice to further customize your degree.
