WCU’s MSW program offers the highest quality education for the best value in the greater Philadelphia area.

For students working full-time in addition to attending school, there are opportunities for employment-based internships as well as extended internships. The MSW program also offers a full-time (12 month) or part-time (2 year) advanced standing option to qualified applicants who have graduated within the past five years with a bachelor’s degree in social work (BSW) from a program accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE). The program links students to field placements in growth employment areas such as aging, military social work, substance abuse as well as mental health and public health.
