Washburn University Hybrid MSW Program

Washburn University offers a traditional standing Hybrid MSW program option, with a concentration in Clinical Social Work. Traditional standing students are required to complete a total of 1,120 hours (generalist practicum: 400 hours, clinical practicum: 720 hours) and 66 credit hours to graduate. The Clinical Curriculum compounds on the advancement of critical thinking skills and building of practice skills to the desired needs of clinical practice. Upon completion of the MSW program, graduates will be prepared and committed to providing direct clinical social work services to individuals, families, and groups.

While the department of social work created seated and online sections that aim to offer quality courses, regardless of format or method of delivery, not all classes are offered online at this moment. Currently foundation level classes are offered online for traditional standing students. Social work faculty members believe there is no substitute for direct observation, practice, and "hands-on" learning, particularly in social work practice courses.

Washburn Department of Social Work is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) and the university is accredited by the North Central Association Higher Learning Commission.
