Our MSW program provides students with an initial Generalist year, followed by a year of Specialized study. The program is offered both on-campus and online. Students admitted to the on-campus program have the option of enrolling under a two-year, three-year, or four-year plan. Those who have earned a BSW degree from a CSWE-accredited program may qualify for the Advanced Standing program. Learn more about the MSW.
