Benefits of Majoring in Social Work

Opportunity for Advanced Standing

Though MGA does not currently offer a Master of Social Work program, students who complete the MGA Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) program may have the opportunity to complete their Master of Social Work (MSW) in a shorter time. According to the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE), undergraduate students who complete a BSW program accredited by the CSWE may apply for what is known as an advanced-standing MSW. While a traditional MSW consists of around 2 years (60 hours) of full-time study, an advanced-standing program can be completed in as little as three semesters (30-34 hours).
