Program Overview

Program Description:
MSW program is a generalist degree designed for working professionals because it offers convenient Friday/Saturday classes. The program combines both theoretical and practical knowledge, so that students earn a degree that is highly respected in the work place. The program’s foundation courses contain content and learning experiences that all MSW graduates need for competent, generalist social work practice. Supervised field work is required in the first and second years. USF’s MSW program is designed for working professionals because it offers convenient Friday/Saturday classes. Full-time students attending classes on Fridays and Saturdays can expect to complete the degree in two years or four semesters. Advance standing students (those with a BSW from an accredited program) should anticipate one academic year for completion. Part-time students are welcome.
