Applications for MSW Accepted this Fall
Utah State University offers a master’s degree in social work in either a two-year, full-time program at the Logan campus, or a three-year, part-time program through distance education. The three-year program is available at the regional campuses in Tooele, Brigham City, and the Uintah Basin, as well as in the Weber and Davis areas.
The next part-time cohort begins in the fall of 2011. The program will begin accepting applications for the 2011 cohort this fall. To obtain priority review, students must submit their applications by January 15th of 2011. This exciting distance education opportunity is only available every three years, so interested students should start preparing their applications now. General admission requirements include:
- Bachelor’s degree from accredited institution
- Minimum 3.0 GPA
- Official transcript of all university/college coursework
- GRE/MAT exam scores (40th percentile minimum)
- Three letters of recommendation
- Supplemental Application
- Personal Statement
The career opportunities available to social workers increase even more upon obtaining a master’s degree. There is a current high demand for human service professionals, and with an MSW, graduates will be able to practice in a wide variety of careers in the social work profession. “The Master of Social Work unlocks doors for upward career mobility for people in the human service profession,” says Dr. Derrik Tollefson, coordinator of the MSW program. The degree can lead to a clinical social work license, and many other possibilities.
Information meetings about the MSW program will be held later this summer. Anyone interested in attending these meetings, or on the program in general, should contact Dr. Tollefson: firstname.lastname@example.org. Information is also available on the social work department website.
