Which Track Is Right for You?
USF's online MSW program has two tracks designed for both recently graduated students and working professionals. Both program tracks include top-tier faculty, real-world field placement experience and the ability to study remotely.
Traditional Master of Social Work
This program is designed for students looking to establish a career in the social work field. No prior social work education or experience is necessary to qualify. You can complete the traditional MSW in as few as eight semesters. The semester course load requirement makes this program a good fit for working professionals.
Advanced Standing Master of Social Work*
USF’s online Advanced Standing Master of Social Work program is designed for individuals who earned a BSW within the last five years. This program allows students to complete 35 credit hours in as few as 3 semesters full time or 5 semesters part time.
*To qualify for the Advanced Standing program, students must hold a BSW earned within the past five years from a CSWE-accredited school. Related degrees in similar disciplines cannot substitute the BSW requirement.
