Curriculum Guides

Following are sample programs of study for full-time, part-time, and advanced standing students. These are examples and the dept. reserves the right to change the schedule if needed. Students should work with their advisors to assure proper sequencing of courses and timely completion of the program. The department offers courses so full-time students can complete the program in two years, and part-time students can complete the program in three years.

Beginning this fall 2016 the university will be converting from a quarter system to a semester system.  All courses in the MSW program will be offered on a semester basis after that date.  Please see  programs of study for more information.
