MSW program


The Regular Standing two-year MSW program is for those with bachelor's degrees other than a BSW or for those who earned their BSW more than five years ago. A one-year Advanced Standing program is available for those who have earned their BSW within the past five years. 

The MSW program builds on our highly regarded BSW program and features small classes, engaged faculty, and significant opportunity for community outreach and interdisciplinary collaboration with UIndy's health sciences and psychology programs—an innovative approach in the state of Indiana.

Small classes, individualized attention

An important feature of UIndy's MSW program is our small program size. This allows you to work closely with faculty who will get to know you, your strengths and your career goals, and help you find practicum sites and select elective courses that will help you achieve them.

State-of-the-art facilities

UIndy's new Health Pavilion opens in Fall 2015.

The Phylis Lan Lin Department of Social Work is located in the UIndy Health Pavilion, along with UIndy’s other health and wellness-related disciplines and industry partners. The health pavilion provides clinical facilities to serve the community, along with classroom and lab space, and is an integrated hub where faculty, students and professionals in the field can collaborate.
