How to use Graduate Certificates to apply to the MSW program
Apply for a Graduate Certificate
You need to complete two graduate certificates to apply to the MSW - one in Advanced Social Work Practice and a second in Clinical Social Work Practice, International & Community Development, or Leadership in the Human Services. You can complete them in any order.
Check with a student advisor
You have five years from starting the first certificate to apply to the MSW program. If you intend to follow this pathway, you should check with a student advisor early in your journey to explore options and timelines.
Apply for your second Certificate
After completing your first certificate, apply to do your second.
Apply to the MSW Program
Once you've completed both certificates you're eligible to apply to do a course-based MSW. If you're accepted (it's competitive) you'll receive credit for the 24 units of coursework you've already completed.
