Enrollment Options

MSW Campus Program

Our MSW Campus Program enables you to pursue full or part-time graduate coursework on the Urbana-Champaign campus.  This program is open to Advanced Standing students, as well as students with undergraduate degrees in other fields.

MSW Outreach Program

An additional option is our MSW Outreach Program. This program enables you to work full-time while pursuing your graduate degree through blended online and evening classes in select communities throughout the state, and eventually through a one-semester commitment (typically one day a week) on campus and an internship in your home community.  The MSW Outreach Program is open to Advanced Standing students, as well as, students with undergraduate degrees in other fields.

MSW/MBA for Advanced Standing Program Students

All students admitted to both graduate programs are encouraged to begin with their MSW coursework. As an advanced standing student, the MSW degree will be complete with the MBA coursework beginning in the fall semester.  Students take MBA classes exclusively for one academic year (two semesters), completing 40 credit hours. An additional 20 credit hours must be completed any time after they have completed their first year of MBA coursework. All students must remain enrolled as an MBA student for a minimum of three semesters and maintain a 2.75 GPA in Business and a 3.0 GPA. in Social Work.

MSW/MBA for Traditional Program students

All students admitted to both graduate programs begin their MBA coursework in the fall semester and take MBA classes exclusively for one academic year (two semesters), completing 40 credit hours. An additional 20 credit hours must be completed any time after the first year. The remaining MBA courses may spread out as a student completes coursework for the MSW—though we would recommend taking them these courses in the final semester. All students must remain enrolled as an MBA student for a minimum of three semesters and maintain a 2.75 GPA in Business and a 3.0 GPA. in Social Work.
