Part-time MSW Program

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 aligns with your career goals.

After taking introductory courses in your first semester, you will choose to specialize in either clinical practice or macro practice. The program also allows you to complete one or more certificates to further customize your degree.


Three-year Program

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.
