What does it take to earn my master of social work from U of M?

The MSW program is a 60 credit hour program, typically taken over 4 semesters. The 60 credit hours cover the following:

  • 18 credit hours of Foundation coursework (pending possible exemptions)
  • 1 credit hour in a Foundation Field Seminar
  • 2 credit hours in Foundation Fieldwork
  • 6 credit hours in your Practice Method Concentration
  • 9 credit hours in your Practice Area
  • 3 credit hours in advanced evaluation
  • 12 credit hours are required in Advanced Fieldwork

Advanced Standing students are automatically exempt from 15 credit hours of foundation coursework and fieldwork, and thus are only required to complete 45 credit hours to graduate.
