The Springfield College master of social work (MSW) program provides students with the education and experience needed to make a difference in the field of social work. Hands-on experience and faculty members who are recognized for their work locally, nationally, and internationally for their work, provide students with a well-rounded social work education.

If attending full-time in our weekday option, students can earn their MSW in two years. Classes meet on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. In addition to classroom participation, students complete two field practicums and participate in field seminars.

If attending through our part-time weekend option, classes meet two weekends per month for three years with fall, spring, and summer semesters. In addition to classroom participation, students complete a field practicum in the second and third years, as well as participate in field seminars. Many students in the weekend program are employed in service-related positions, creating a rich and diverse classroom experience.

Please note: We are now enrolling in the Master of Social Work Weekday Program at our Springfield campus for the fall 2020 semester.
