MSW Part-Time Program

During the past couple of years, our MSW Program Committee has been busy designing a part-time MSW Program to accompany our current full-time program.  The good news is that the University Curriculum Committee has recently approved our design.  Therefore we can begin accepting students into a part-time MSW Program, beginning in fall 2013.  Here are some details about the program:

Classes are offered in St. Cloud one day a week, either on Wednesdays 3:00 to 8:45 p.m., or on Thursdays 3:30 to 9:05 p.m.  Depending on the semester, part-time students will either take 2 classes on a Wednesday, or take 2 classes on a Thursday.

Individuals earning a Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) within the last seven years can be accepted as Advanced Standing students and can complete the part-time MSW program in 2 years (30 credits). Note: the non-thesis option requires 33 credits.

Individuals with a bachelor’s degree but not a BSW can be admitted to the program, assuming all prerequisites are completed, and enter in Foundation status completing the part-time MSW Program in 4 years (54 credits). Note: the non-thesis option requires 57 credits.

If you have questions about this program, please contact Dr. Gary Whitford at, or 320-308-4880.  Our Departmental Website will also contain information in the near future
