Curriculum

The 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.  The curriculum for both the Standard Program and the Advanced Standing Program is carefully sequenced to provide students the necessary information to proceed to the next level of coursework.  Students must successfully complete all required coursework at one level before being allowed to move to the more advanced level of coursework.
