Class sequencing for full-time students
The core classes (including Field) are offered during specific times in each term.
Full-time students who take a course-based program (non-thesis) may expect to complete the program by July of the following year and to graduate in October. Full-time student who elect to do a thesis should expect to spend eight to twelve months more for completion.
Class sequencing for part-time students
To maintain the integrity of the part-time student's academic program, core classes are taken in a prescribed sequence. The elective classes may be taken concurrently with the core classes in any year.
Part-time students who take a course-based option (non-thesis) may expect to spend two to three years to complete the program, graduating in May or October. Part-time students who elect to do a thesis should expect to spend an additional twelve to eighteen months for completion.
- Continuation as a Thesis Only student, for both full-time and part-time students, requires continuous registration and payment of continuation fees every term until all requirements are complete.
- It is important for campus students to note that most of the MSW core classes and the requisite agency field placement are available during daytime hours only.
