MSW Program Description

MSW Degree Concentration:

Students pursue the degree of a Master in Social Work (MSW) with a concentration of Advanced Practice Leadership (APL). This concentration provides opportunities for the student to develop both micro and macro skills, so graduates of our program are uniquely prepared to work in either a direct practice or administrative work environment. 

MSW Degree Tracks:

The Foundation track is for students who do not hold a Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) degree from an accredited program but instead have a bachelor degree in another field of study. The Foundation Track is 62 credit hours.

The Advanced Standing track is for graduates of a Council on Social Work Education (CSWE)-accredited BSW program with a BSW obtained within the last 5 years or, if more than 5 years ago, who hold a license in good standing and have current work experience in the field of social work. The Advanced Standing Track is 36 credit hours.

  • Foundation
