Available at NNU’s Nampa campus and our distance learning location in Idaho Falls, the program utilizes a cohort model that allows for an interactive learning environment and collegiality throughout the student's course work. Additionally, the MSW practicums give students professional experience and help them build relationships with local professionals. Upon completion of the program, students earn a graduate degree and are prepared to take the MSW licensing exam. With classes offered evenings and weekends, this program is ideal for students with work and/or family responsibilities who wish to advance their career.
