Learn About Our Programs

Two women talkingThe University of Wyoming Division of Social Work offers two graduate programs of study, both culminating in an MSW degree with a concentration in advanced generalist social work practice.  Our MSW Program is a hybrid program consisting of face-to-face weekend classes, video conferencing, and some online course work.  The MSW curriculum for both programs is carefully sequenced to provide students the necessary information to proceed to the next level of coursework. 

The Division of Social Work MSW program is a hybrid program.  Weekday classes can be attended from any UW Outreach Center in the state as well as in person at the Laramie campus.  In addition, there are five intensive weekends each semester at the Laramie campus.  Field practicums can be arranged at virtually any agency around the state so students that live outside the Laramie region can attend their field practicums closer to home if they wish.  Elective courses and field practicum placements are used to provide additional emphasis in selected areas. 

Standard MSW Program

The Standard MSW Program is designed for students who have an undergraduate degree other than a BSW degree.  Students entering the Standard MSW Program begin their studies in the summer semester. Their first 34 credit hours are directed towards mastery of foundation courses and field practicum that help prepare students for entry into the advanced generalist concentration.

Advanced Standing MSW Program

The Advanced Standing MSW Program is designed for those students with a BSW degree from a Council on Social Work Education accredited program.  Advanced Standing MSW Program students enter the program in the summer of each academic year, where they complete bridge courses which prepare them for continued study within the advanced generalist sequence.
