UNC School of Social Work expands its Winston-Salem MSW program

The UNC-Chapel Hill School of Social Work is expanding its Winston-Salem Advanced Standing master of social work (MSW) program to offer two areas of concentration: Direct Practice, and Management and Community Practice.

The Advanced Standing program is tailored to meet the needs of the working adult who has a bachelor’s degree in social work. In this 20-month program, classes are held on Fridays at the Forsyth County Department of Social Services. Most students complete their field placement requirements in their home community during the work week.

A traditional MSW program is offered in Winston-Salem as well, for those with a bachelor’s degree in another discipline.
