MSW Foundation and Concentration Courses

MSW Foundation, Intermediate, and Concentration Courses
The first 30 credit hours of the 60 credit hour Master of Social Work (MSW) Program constitute the foundation for the MSW degree. They are completed in the first two years of the part-time program and contain the content and learning experiences that all MSW graduates need for competent practice. The Second 30 credit hours are the Concentration Courses and are offered primarily in the third year of the program. The South Bend Program only offers one concentration in Mental Health and Addictions. Students wishing to graduate with another concentration can transfer to the MSW Program in Indianapolis for their concentration courses. The IUPUI Master of Social Work Program offers concentration courses in the following areas: Children, Families, Health, School Social Work, and Leadership.
