Master of Social Work
The Master of Social Work (MSW) program is designed to prepare students for entry-level professional practice in social work. Upon graduation, students are eligible to take the Licensed Master of Social Work (LMSW) exam, and they may also pursue further clinical supervision requirements to become a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). The KSU MSW program is fully accredited by the Council on Social Work Education through February 2021.
The MSW program offers a full-time program of study with a focus in clinical practice. The program consists of four academic semesters (two years) of 60 credit hours with 48 of these credit hours spent in the classroom and 12 in supervised field practicum sites located throughout the metropolitan Atlanta area. It should be noted that the MSW Program does not offer Advanced Standing.
Clinical Field Practicum
All MSW students are required to complete a clinical field practicum at an agency site approved by the Department. First-year students in the full-time program of study spend two full days in a field practicum setting, and second-year students in the full-time program of study spend three full days in a field practicum setting.
More specific details of the program of study and policies for the program can be found in the University Graduate Catalog.
