No, a BSW is not required for admission to the MSW program. Our students come from a wide variety of backgrounds. The majority of our students hold a bachelor’s degree in a liberal arts discipline (psychology, sociology, etc.), but we also have students with backgrounds in business, engineering, law, etc.
We offer an Extended Degree program (partial part-time program) which allows students to complete the first half (30 semester hours) of the program on a part-time basis. The remaining 30 semester hours must be completed on a full-time basis (minimum 9 credit hours per semester) over two or three semesters. Students are required to enroll in field instruction after acquiring 15 credit hours of coursework and must spend 2-3 terms fulfilling their field instruction requirements.
No; however, transfer credit is possible for courses taken from CSWE accredited MSW programs or other accredited graduate-level programs where credits have not been applied toward a degree.
