If you have a BSW degree, you may be able to complete the MSW in only one to two years. We typically offer courses during fall, spring, and summer. You will need to complete two or four field experiences, which involve working in an agency under supervision. Please visit the catalog for more details.
This degree is available in Silver City, Gallup, Deming, Truth or Consequences, and Lordsburg. Classes are offered online, or on weekends, or at night. Most of our students continue to hold down full-time jobs while attending graduate school, so please don't think that your busy life needs to keep you from earning an MSW.
