​Master of Social Work

 MSW Safe Fellows

The Master of Social Work (MSW) Program at UC prepares you for a career in advanced social work practice. The curriculum is designed to promote the integration of learning in the classroom concurrent with learning in a field practicum in an agency setting.

You can choose to attend the UC School of Social Work on one of three tracks: Advanced Standing (one year), Full-Time (two years), and Part-Time (three years). Please review the Admission Requirements for each track.

At the end of the first year of study (or upon admission for Advanced Standing students), you can choose your specializations within the Direct Practice concentration: Children & Families, Health & Aging, or Mental Health. These ​specializations have specific curricula and field placements. Visit our Curriculum page to learn about the opportunities available.

The MSW Program also has an active student body, with students participating in the Social Work Graduate Student Association and the UC Chapter of the National Association of Black Social Workers.

Phi Alpha, an international social work honorary society, also has a chapter at the School of Social Work. Membership is open to both BSW and MSW students based on GPA. Members are inducted into the society during spring semester each year.

When you graduate with an MSW from the UC School of Social Work, you can expect to be prepared for advanced social work practice with individuals, families, groups, communities, and organizations and can become licensed as a social worker in the state of Ohio after passing your licensing exam. Some students also choose to pursue a PhD at one of many universities across the country.
