Program offers a two-year (five-term) degree for students who do not have a bachelor’s degree in social work and a one-year (three-term) advanced standing program for those with a bachelor’s degree in social work from a Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) accredited program*.
Enrollment and Concentration Options:
- Advanced Standing
- Two-Year Foundation
- Distance Education (Advance Standing and Foundation) Note: the distance education program is part-time only.
An extended-enrollment (part-time) option is available for on-campus Advanced Standing and Two-Year Foundation students. Extended-enrollment course plans will be developed on an individual basis. Extended-enrollment students must be able to attend classes at the times offered (3 hr. blocks) and be available for the field practicum.
