Course Details
The first part of the MSW program is professional foundation content. Students typically complete their foundation coursework during the first semester (advanced standing) or first year (60-credit-hour) of enrollment. Typically, students enroll in advanced courses, including electives and course related to the student’s chosen concentration, only after they have completed their professional foundation courses.

Students may also enroll in the MSW program on a part-time basis. Part-time students typically complete the program in four years.

The School offers field education placements throughout the state of Alabama and occasionally in neighboring states. MSW students may also apply to complete their advanced field education placement (SW 595) in Washington, DC.
