Program Options

The MSW is a full-time program that allows students to complete the degree in 20 months.  However, we acknowledge there are students who need the flexibility to satisfy work and family needs. Therefore, we offer three options for students to choose from:

  • Option A (Full-time):  Students who choose to attend full time enroll in 12-16 credit hours of course work during two academic years. Students simultaneously complete 400 hours of field work during the first academic year and 500 hours during the second academic year.  Students have the summer off in-between but may take electives if they choose.  Students selecting this option are on track to graduate in 20 calendar months.

  • Option B (Part-time - 2 years):  Students selecting this option enroll in 4 courses (12 credit hours) each semester during the academic year and do their field practicum in the summer.  Students complete 400 hours of field work during the summer after they complete the generalist coursework, and 500 hours of field work the summer after they complete the specialization coursework.  On this schedule students are on track to graduate in 24 calendar months. 

  • Option C (Part-time – 4 years):  Students selecting this option will enroll in 6 credit hours each semester during the school year over eight semesters during the fall and winter.  Students will enroll in 4 credit hours and perform 400 hours of fieldwork during the summer after they complete generalist coursework.  Students will also perform 500 hours of fieldwork in the summer after completing your specialization coursework.  On this schedule students are on track to graduate in 48 calendar months.
