Social Work (Advanced Standing) (M.S.W.)
Advanced Standing Program
The M.S.W. program considers advanced standing for exceptional students with undergraduate degrees from accredited baccalaureate social work programs. This program option is offered in Durham and online. Applicants must have graduated from the B.S.W. program within five years of matriculation into the M.S.W. program with a GPA of 3.2 or higher. Advanced standing students complete a minimum of 35 credits for graduation. This includes a 10-week summer practicum and seminar, which students must take prior to their advanced practice and field placement.
