A new part-time master’s degree program in clinical social work—for those who already have an undergraduate degree in social work or social welfare—is now available at the UW School of Social Work. The flexible format is ideal for individuals who work or have family commitments and cannot carry a full-time course load.

The new format was developed in response to an increasing market demand for social work expertise, said Tessa Evans-Campbell, associate dean for academic affairs. “We’re aware that returning to school full-time may entail significant sacrifices for some students. This new option allows people to focus on the area of social work they feel most passionate about while continuing to maintain employment.”

With the new option, students can complete their degree in six consecutive quarters versus the existing part-time track that takes 9 to 11 quarters. The new program should attract a diverse and experienced applicant pool, enhancing the variety of personal perspectives and professional experiences across the School community.
