Student Services FAQ
All MSW students must select a specialized pathway from one of the eight pathways offered by the School:
Specialized pathways focus on theories and interventions related to practice with individuals, families, groups, organizations, communities, and/or society. Pathways also provide an opportunity to apply this knowledge, focusing on selected contexts and domains of practice, with particular attention given to specific policies, procedures, and practices. Each pathway serves to broaden and deepen foundation knowledge and skills, and enhance the specialized skills needed for students to know the how and why of their interventions.
Students complete twelve credit hours in their specialized pathway. A student's choice determines which pathway courses are requirements for graduation.
