Do I need to have a specific major or specific work experience to be accepted to the online MSW?

September 7, 2022

Successful applicants must have a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science in a liberal arts-related field. Beyond that, a specific major is not required.

Specific work experience is not required, either. Many of our students entered our program right after completing their undergraduate or graduate studies, without having accrued work experience in a related field.

That said, if it has been several years since the applicant has completed an undergraduate or graduate degree, it will be important that they include strong references from employers — whatever his or her occupation — in order to be accepted.
