Admission Requirements


There are two entry points to the MSW program:


BSW Entry - A baccalaureate degree in social work (BSW) is required. Please see link for Canadian BSW degrees considered for this requirement: This option is available on campus or online.

Those with a BSW degree are preferred to have at least two years of full time paid employment in a social work position.


Non BSW Entry - A completed four year undergraduate university degree (120 credit hours) in a related field is required. This option is only available on campus on a full time basis.

Preference is given to applicants with two years of social work related experience (paid or volunteer).

This program will be in high demand.  Admission is highly competitive with limited enrollment.

A minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 (on a 4.3 scale) or an equivalent cumulative average of at least B in the last 60 undergraduate credit hours completed. Graduate level credits are not used in the admission average.
