Graduate Ready to Pass ASWB Licensure Exams
Tulane University School of Social Work programs effectively prepare students to serve their communities in accordance with Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) standards. Our graduates’ first-time pass rates on ASWB licensure exams (both master’s and clinical) are consistently higher than the national average.
Students enrolled in the traditional MSW program may choose from our online or our on-campus program. Courses incorporate a variety of learning experiences, including team projects, problem-based learning, creative simulation, and fieldwork, to form a truly “clinical community” curriculum based on relationship-centered practice. Students in the online or on-campus programs can earn the MSW in as little as 16 months or four semesters for full-time students and as little as 32 months or eight semesters for part-time students. Upon graduation, students are prepared to do work that matters in their local communities.
Advanced Standing MSW
The Advanced Standing program is for full-time students who have earned a BSW from a CSWE-accredited program in the last five years. These students are able to complete the MSW coursework in just 12 months, either online or on-campus. The coursework develops students’ knowledge of social work history, policy, and practice, and it also covers data management, analysis, and interpretation. Graduates will have completed a field practicum, equipping them to work with individuals, families, and groups in their local communities.
