NOTE: This program is based on the assumption that students graduated from an accredited B.S.W. program within the past five years and have been granted 30 semester hours of credit toward the M.S.W. degree. If less than 30 hours of advanced credit were granted, the degree plan will require additional course work.


Students will select a concentration for the advanced year of the curriculum. Concentrations are clinical practice, or leadership and community practice. Students will enroll in the sections of Social Work Practice III and IV that correspond with their concentration.

Specializations (optional)

The specializations in the M.S.W. program have specific requirements. If students are interested in pursuing a specialization (addictions, child welfare, gerontology, school social work or M.B.A. leadership certificate), they should consult with the M.S.W. program director for the required courses. The required courses for specializations fulfill elective requirements in the M.S.W. program.
