Students who have a bachelor's degree in social work can start the program as early as Fall 2010 and graduate in one year. Those with bachelor's degrees in other field can begin the program in Fall 2009 and graduate in 18 months.

Classes meet Thursday evenings and online. Students may enroll either part time or full time.

After earning the M.S.W., which is the terminal degree for practitioners, graduates are able to pursue the licensed critical social worker (L.C.S.W.) program.
