Advanced Standing is an accelerated route to the MSW degree, available to those who have graduated within the past five years from a CSWE-accredited undergraduate social work program. Study is nearly, but not exactly, identical to the Specialized Practice level (2nd year) of the Two-Year pathway. The period of study is two semesters: fall-spring, including 600 hours of Field learning at one Field placement.
Advanced Standing students have the option of taking Diversity, Racism, Oppression, and Privilege as one of their two electives. If you wish to do so, speak to your Academic Advisor about it.
