Certificate Course

  1. How large is a MasterTrack cohort?

    The MasterTrack program began in September 2020 with 90 students in the first cohort. There is currently no limit to the number of students who can join a MasterTrack cohort.

  2. How many hours per week are the MasterTrack courses?

    You can expect to spend between 3 and 4 hours per week on a MasterTrack course.

  3. I took the free version (MOOC) of Social Work Practice: Advocating Social Justice and Change. How do I get credit for this course now that I'm pursuing the full MasterTrack Certificate?

    If a learner took the free version of Social Work Practice: Advocating Social Justice and Change and then enrolls in the MasterTrack Certificate, they will need to re-enroll in SWMT 101: Social Work Practice: Advocating Social Justice and Change (the first certificate course) and then the information from their past course completion will pull over into their certificate profile.

  4. What are the benefits of the Social Work: Practice, Policy and Research MasterTrack Certificate?

    The certificate program allows learners to explore the content covered in foundation courses covered at the University of Michigan School of Social Work. It could provide for advancement within a current position or it could be used to add to a resume in hopes of obtaining a social work/social service position. The certificate can also allow qualified applicants to complete the MSW degree in less time. This will result in a cost savings for the MSW degree.

  5. What is the date to sign up for the MasterTrack Certificate Program?

    Coursera will offer several MasterTrack certificate cohort start dates throughout the year. Students can enroll in any cohort, but should align the ending of their cohort with the start of the MSW program, if they are planning to pursue the full MSW degree following Press enter to read full text...

  6. Will I receive an actual certificate after I complete the MasterTrack Certificate program?

    Yes. Coursera will provide a certificate to learners upon completion of assignments for individual MasterTrack courses. Once a learner has completed all courses for the MasterTrack Certificate, the University of Michigan will issue a certificate of completion for the Social Work: Practice, Policy and Research MasterTrack Certificate.


  1. Are the MasterTrack courses graded and are they pass/fail?

    Yes, they are graded and students must receive at least a 70% in the course to pass. Classes cannot be taken pass/fail.

  2. Will our grades for the MasterTrack courses be reflected on our transcripts?

    No, the MasterTrack Certificate program courses are not reflected on your transcript as they are not credit bearing and occur prior to starting the MSW degree program.
