About the Social Work Master’s Program
To complete a Master of Social Work degree, students will follow one of four possible options. Those with standard admission (no prior bachelor’s degree in social work) will complete 59 hours of graduate social work credit, including 900 field placement hours, and will begin in the fall semester. Full-time students on the standard option can complete the program in two years, while part-time students should be finished in four years.
Students who have completed an undergraduate degree in social work from a program that was accredited (or approved by) the Council on Social Work Education may be eligible for advanced admission status. On this option, students normally start in the summer and will complete 32 hours of graduate social work credit, including 500 field placement hours, and will begin in the summer. Full-time students on the advanced option can complete the program in one full calendar year, while part-time students should be finished in two years.
Although opportunities for research are available, the M.S.W. is a non-thesis degree program. For further information, contact Adrienne Scales, Senior Advisor for Social Work, at email@example.com, or review the program website (www.depts.ttu.edu/socialwork/MSW_Program_Pages/MSW_Program.php).
