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.
