Should I consider taking a residential program course if I'm an Online MSW program student?

The answer to this is going to be different for different students, and may even differ depending on the class. Some things to consider:

  • You are moving through the program at a slower pace. Residential students move fast and are often solely focused on school.
  • Residential students enter field sooner. If you're not yet in field, you may find it hard to relate to the things they are talking about.
  • Classes are designed for students who are in Ann Arbor. Groups may need to meet together, and sometimes classes do community based projects that would be difficult for you.
  • Access to faculty might be limited to the day. Even if the class is in an evening, residential program faculty usually restrict office hours to daytime hours.
