Q: Why Should I Pursue A Master Of Social Work Degree?
Q: What Types of Programs Will Be Offered?
Prior to beginning the program students will elect to enter either the full time or part time program. Once the student decides which program they want to pursue they will not be able to change programs.
Full Time Students will attend classes and complete field education on a full time basis.
Part Time students will participate in an extended time program designed for those who need to work while they attend graduate school. Classes will be offered on Friday Evenings and Saturdays.
Note: On occasion, students may be able to intern in an agency where they are currently employed, although strict guidelines apply. Employment-based internships must be approved by both the Field Coordinator and Chair of the Social Work Department. Students wishing to pursue an internship at their place of employment must first complete the Application for Employment-Based Internship, which can be requested from the Social Work Field Office or found in the BSW and MSW Field Manuals. Students must show that the internship position is 1) a new learning experience when compared with the current position and 2) the internship position meets the criteria specified for the level of internship.
