About the Master of Social Work 60-Hour Program

The part-time MSW program can be completed in three or four years depending on what the student wishes. It is designed for students who need to work or have other commitments while going to school. In this program, the foundation coursework is the first two years. The third year begins the concentration curriculum. OU Extended Campus offers only the first two years of this program for the Master of Social Work. Students must return to the main campus for the third year.

If the student chooses to complete the program in three years, the third year will look more like a full-time year. If the student chooses to complete the program in four years, the last two years will continue at the part-time pace. For more on the part time program, please view the foundation degree sheet
