Master of Social Work

The Master’s degree in Social Work prepares advanced generalist social workers with the specialized skills to offer therapy, address complex problems, use evidence-based practice interventions, engage in scientific inquiry, and take leadership roles within their work environments and on behalf of the profession. Brescia’s MSW program teaches the advanced skills needed by social workers across the country.

Brescia University offers two options for obtaining your Master of Social Work degree:

  • a one-year, 30-credit-hour, advanced standing Master of Social Work Program for students who have completed a CSWE accredited Bachelor of Social Work program in the last five years with a social work GPA of 3.2.
  • a two-year, 60-credit-hour, Master of Social Work Program for students who have completed a bachelor’s degree in a field other than social work with a major GPA of 3.0.

Brescia University will reimburse MSW graduates who pass the ASWB licensing examination, up to $230. Students should take the examination as soon as they are eligible, as determined by the state where they will practice.

Brescia University’s Master of Social Work program is in candidacy status with the Council on Social Work Education.
