The Master of Social Work program prepares students to work in a variety of practices including mental health and aging. Students become skilled and compassionate professionals who provide comprehensive and culturally sensitive clinical care using an evidence-based approach. Demand for social work professionals is strong and employment is expected to show continued robust growth over the next 10 years.

This hybrid (online and classroom) program is cohort-based and open to students with or without academic and career experience in social work. This accelerated 16-month traditional program is designed for students without a bachelor’s degree in social work, and a new cohort starts each fall trimester (August). A 12-month Advanced Standing option is available for students with bachelor’s degree in social work, and new cohort starts each spring semester (January).
