About

The Master of Science in Social Work (MSSW) program at The University of Texas at Austin prepares students for advanced social work practice  with individuals, families, groups, organizations, and communities. 

Overview

Many students enroll in the two-year, regular full-time program. Students wanting more flexible options may extend the program to 2½ years, 3 years, or 3½ years, depending on enrollment date. Students with a Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) degree from an accredited school complete a 42-48 hour program.

The Master of Science in Social Work program provides opportunities to develop courses of independent study with individual faculty and/or take elective courses in other university graduate departments. In addition, electives and some required courses may be taken during the summer, enabling students to pursue additional interests or lighten their fall or spring course load. To accommodate most schedules, the School offers required courses during daytime and evening hours.
