Master of Social Work

Program Overview

The K-State Salina Social Work Program and the University of Kansas (KU) School of Social Welfare are partnering to offer the KU Master of Social Work (MSW) at K-State Salina.

If you already have a BSW (or are close to completing your BSW), you may qualify for the Advanced Standing plan of study which is offered by KU at K-State Salina. Students begin coursework and classes with sufficient enrollment are taught in a blended format with on-campus classes held at the K-State Salina campus every other Saturday. Classes that do not make minimum enrollment will be delivered in a fully online format with alternating weeks of synchronous and asynchronous learning and content.


Why the MSW?

The MSW prepares graduates for advanced social work practice in one of two broad specializations — either clinical social work practice with individuals, families and groups or social work macro practice aimed at social service administration, social policy development and social advocacy.


Advanced Standing MSW at K-State Salina

The Advanced Standing MSW at K-State Salina is taught in a one-year, full-time or two-year, part-time plan of study. Classes are held on campus every other Saturday with the alternate Saturdays delivered in a distance-learning format. Full-time students enrolled in the Advanced Standing MSW program at K-State Salina are eligible to apply for the Integrated Health Scholars Program. Scholars develop knowledge and skills for interprofessional clinical practice and leadership in integrated health care and receive a $10K scholarship during their advanced-standing year.
