Part-Time MSW Curriculum

Part-time students complete the MSW program in 3.5 years, taking 6 or 7 credits each semester, including summer sessions. The part-time program is offered as a blended program, allowing students the opportunity to complete half of their classroom experiences online. The program offers one online course each semester where students meet in a virtual classroom for discussions, presentations and group work.
