U-M School of Social Work special programs offer specialized academic opportunities, some with significant financial assistance, that can enhance your learning and preparation for a career in social work.
During the first term of enrollment, students interested in school social work should consult with the appropriate faculty advisor about the practice of social work in schools and certification requirements for such practice. Since requirements vary from state to state, and these are not all covered by the usual MSW program, it is necessary to plan the academic program of each prospective school social worker individually and early in the MSW program. The appropriate faculty advisor can provide more information about requirements for temporary approval as a school social worker in the state of Michigan.
