The Master of Social Work (MSW) program is a full-time, two-year, 60 credit hour curriculum. We also offer a full-time, one year, 30-33 credit hour advanced standing curriculum. Both the two-year and advanced standing programs are designed to train students for advanced clinical social work practice children and families. After the completion of this program, students are prepared to take state licensing examinations at the LMSW (Licensed Master of Social Work) level and to begin preparation for the LCSW (Licensed Clinical Social Worker).
