Succeed With Career Services
Connect with employers at career fairs, polish your résumé at workshops, and broaden your network with alumni. Plus, career services doesn’t end at graduation—it’s a lifelong membership.
Throughout our three- or four-year MSW program, you will complete a challenging but flexible curriculum, acquire valuable field experience, and select a field of practice that matches your career goals.
Choose to specialize in either clinical practice—which prepares you to work with individuals, families, and groups—or macro practice, which focuses on readying the future leaders of the public and social services sectors. The program also allows you to complete one or more certificates to further customize your degree.
The three-year program divides the equivalent of the full-time foundation year into two years. You will take two courses each semester for the first year, then in the second year, you take two courses per semester in addition to your field education placement two-days a week. During the third year, you will have a full-time course load and complete the final field placement.
If you are interested in more flexibility, you may extend the program to a fourth year by dividing your final year of coursework into two years.
In the four-year program, you will take two courses each semester for the duration of the program, with the exception of the first semester during your third year, in which you would take three courses.
Field Education is taken during the second and fourth years of the four-year program. During the second year, you will spend two days a week in field and increase to three days a week during the fourth year.
