Designed for those who work full time, this unique option allows you to earn an MSW degree over a 32-month period through evening, weekend, and summer study. This program option is open only to new first-year MSW students. Students will complete their 65 credits within a learning community cohort that remains the same over the first year of the program. Courses and field placements are scheduled during evenings and weekends, leading to the MSW degree in 32 months. The program option features a specially coordinated advisement system in which your practice instructor is also your field learning advisor. You will also participate in a special practice lab over your first two semesters designed to prepare you for the field agency placement you will begin in your third semester. The period of study for this option is eight semesters including summer study, with 1,100 hours of field learning. As in our two-year program, the program consists of a generalist practice curriculum followed by a specialized practice curriculum in clinical social work with individuals, families, and groups.
Applicants must have at least three years of professional or business experience working with people. Admission is selective. Financial aid is available. This program is only available at the Washington Square Campus location.
