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.

Students who anticipate beginning the program in 2015 or later should be aware that the university will be converting from a quarter system to a semester system in the fall of 2016, and all courses in the MSW program will be offered on a semester basis after that date.  Please see the programs of study that affect the program you plan to enter.
