The Master of Social Work (M.S.W.) program in Traverse City prepares students for advanced professional practice in direct service and in the development and implementation of social welfare policies and programs. The M.S.W. lays the foundation for students to assume leadership roles in society's institutions, organizations, and communities.
The 60-credit-hour M.S.W. program is available as a cohort and students have the flexibility to work while going to school. Students will start the program together in a specified semester and move through the program as a group. If you have a Bachelor of Social Work (B.S.W) degree you may qualify for advance standing. The curriculum incorporates a focus on the Council of Social Work Education's (CSWE) core competencies at both the foundation and advanced practice level.
