Advanced Standing Program (SW)

The Social Work, Social Policy, and Social Administration (SW) Advanced Standing Master's program is designed for exceptional students who have graduated from an accredited baccalaureate social work (BSW) program within the past five years.

The Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) and Crown Family School's criteria for admission to the master's program must include an earned baccalaureate degree from a college or university accredited by a recognized regional accrediting association. Baccalaureate social work graduates entering master's social work programs are not to repeat what has been achieved in their baccalaureate social work programs. 

Enrollment in this program begins in the Summer quarter. Students register for four quarters of full-time study in their chosen concentration, which includes 12 advanced courses and 640 hours of field placement for Clinical Practice students and 496 for Social Administration students. Field placements can be completed during the academic year with a potential summer start. Students will also have the opportunity to participate in the Crown Family School’s advanced curricular options.
