Curriculum

The work required for the MSW degree is divided into a foundation curriculum and an advanced curriculum, each of which requires the equivalent of one year of full-time study. To accommodate student needs, our MSW Program can be completed in one of three ways:

  1. The Two-Year Program:  Two academic years (6 quarters) of coursework. This option is best for students who are able to focus their time and attention to full-time, intensive study.
  2. The Three-Year Program:  Three academic years (9 quarters) of coursework. This option is best for students who have to work (or have other, similar obligations) while they are enrolled in school.  No less rigorous or intensive, but spread out over three years.
  3. Pathway Distance Education Program:  Essentially, this is the same as the three-year program, but is taught online for students who either live too far away to attend courses at the main CSUSB campus, or are in a work / personal situation that makes attendance at CSUSB impractical.
