About the Social Work Master's Program


To complete a Master of Social Work degree, students will follow one of four possible tracks. Those with standard admission (no prior bachelor’s degree in social work) will complete 59 hours of graduate credit, including 900 field placement hours, and beginning in the fall semester. Full-time students on the standard track 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 track, students normally start in the summer and will complete 32 hours of graduate credit, including 500 field placement hours, and beginning in the summer. Full-time students on the advanced track can complete the program in one full calendar year, while part-time students should be finished in two years.
