The MSW Cohort Program was designed to meet the needs of working professionals who desire to earn an advanced degree on a part-time basis while remaining employed full time. The program is designed for a specific number of students (a cohort) to move through the program coursework together, taking the same classes and building peer relationships that will support each other.

As a student in this program, you will be able to complete the 60-hour MSW on a part-time schedule in 4 years (2 years for advanced standing students) by taking two classes each fall and spring semester. Typically, you will attend class only one evening per week.
