Pursuing advancement in social work
This graduation plan is for those students who were admitted into the MSW regular standing program in 2009. If you were admitted from 2010 to
present, view the Regular Standing Part-Time Plan.
The regular standing program is for students who have a bachelor’s degree in a field other than social work. This program involves a total of 62 graduate credit hours, which includes two field practicum placements in the community.
The courses for this program begin in fall of the year you are accepted; the full-time option typically takes two years to complete versus four years for the part-time option. The regular standing part-time option is available on both the Springfield and Joplin campuses.
You are required to meet with your advisor when scheduling classes. The course rotation page provides information about when classes will be offered.
