Full-time MSW Program

Our full-time, two-year MSW program offers a rigorous curriculum, valuable field education opportunities, and the ability to customize your degree by selecting a specialization and field of practice and pursuing optional certificates in a range of subjects.

Throughout the program, you'll benefit from BCSSW's culture of support, including guidance and mentoring from professors, advisors, staff, and alumni. 


Foundation Year

In their 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.
