The Hybrid MSW program is designed for students employed in social services and related fields who are working full time while pursuing their MSW and is available to both full program and advacned standing students. Students can expect to earn an MSW in 3 years by completing essential course work and field requirements according to the established degree plan. Students who possess an undergraduate degree in social work from an accredited baccalaureate program in social work can be considered for advanced standing admission and complete their degree in approximately 2½ years.
Each course has portions that will be delivered online with classes meeting in a face to face classroom setting one to two Saturdays a month. Hybrid Program students will be assigned to a cohort and will take classes with this same cohort throughout the program. During this time, students develop supportive professional relationships with their classmates that enhance the learning environment and help establish a network of support post graduation. The Hybrid Program students can also pursue an optional specialization in Health and Behavioral Health.
Classes for the Hybrid Program are held at both the main UH campus as well as the UH Sugar Land campus. The Hybrid Program is available to all applicants, including Advanced Standing (applicants with a BSW degree).
Applications are available for the Online MSW Program beginning August 1st and are reviewed on a rolling basis. We strongly encourage applicants to apply early. To ensure full consideration, applications must be received no later than March 1st for fall admission.
