Master of Social Work
The Master of Social Work (MSW) program launched in fall 2018. Our in-person MSW program prepares graduates for advanced clinical social work practice. Classes are held in the evening on the Pocatello campus with opportunities to attend via Zoom from the ISU Idaho Falls campus or the CSI Twin Falls campus. We offer one specialization in Advanced Clinical Practice. Students can take elective courses focused on practice with children and families or in forensic social work.
Applicants who earned a BA in Social Work within the past 7 years can be admitted with Advanced Standing and complete the MSW in 35 credits (3 semesters full-time or 5 semesters part-time). Applicants without a recent BA in Social Work can complete the MSW degree in 59 credits (5 semesters full-time or 8 semesters part-time) accredited by 2021.
