MSW Full Time Program
The MSW On-Campus Full Time Program is a 2-year program. In this program, classes and field education are concurrent in both years. The first year has a load of 4 classes per semester (cohorts of classes Mondays & Fridays or Wednesdays & Fridays from morning through the afternoon) and a field course which includes 16 hours of internship per week (Tuesdays and Thursdays) and field seminars. The second year has a load of 4 classes per semester (Mondays and Tuesdays morning through evening) and a field course including 24 hours of internship per week (Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays) and field seminars. Foundation year classes are given primarily in the daytime hours (9:00AM to 6:00PM). Internships are traditionally during regular agency business working hours. In the final year of classes, students are not in cohorts or restricted to certain class times; however, students are expected to be available for classes Mondays and Tuesdays between 9:00AM and 9:00PM.
If you are admitted to the On-Campus Program, please expect to do some summer reading and writing preparation, attend field internship fair, and to attend as many as five days of mandatory orientation 1 to 2 weeks prior to the start of your first semester of classes in August.
