In response to student feedback and changes in the social work profession, we are in the process of revising our Advanced Curriculum.

Please review the Advanced Curriculum options based on your year of admission and specific program.

All incoming students entering SSW Fall 2023 (except Advanced Standing students)

In the advanced curriculum, students have course requirements and an advanced field practicum based on their selection of the clinical, macro, or dual concentration.   

For Traditional MSW students, 33 credits of advanced curriculum includes:  

  • One (1) advanced policy course  
  • Four (4) 3-credit advanced methods courses  
  • Two (2) elective courses  

For Advanced Standing students coming in with a BSW, 36 credits of advanced curriculum includes an elective in addition to the courses listed above. 

All continuing students and incoming Advanced Standing students

In addition to a concentration, these students are required to select a specialization in one of six fields of practice. Students may also select a sub-specialization, depending on their specialization.
