The full-time MSW program is 60 credit hours and can be completed in two years, including one summer. Students in the 60 hours program come from a wide variety of backgrounds, no BSW is required. The first thirty hours, called the foundation coursework, are general, foundational level social work courses. This coursework is the same for all students and makes up the first year in the full-time program.
After completing the first thirty hours of the program, students select their concentration and move into the concentration curriculum. The concentration curriculum makes up the second year in the full-time program and completes the remaining thirty hours. At OU, we offer two concentrations: Direct Practice and Administration and Community Practice (read more about them here). The courses in the concentration curriculum vary depending on which concentration is chosen.
