Deadline to apply for 20-month Advanced Standing Program slated for Oct. 13

The deadline to apply to the School of Social Work’s new 20-month Advanced Standing Program is quickly approaching. Potential students have until Tuesday, Oct. 13, to submit an application.

The new 20-month program is designed for candidates who have graduated from an accredited BSW program, including students who are eager to continue working as they complete their graduate degree. Applicants who are currently employed in social work-related settings, as well as those interested in advancing their macro social work skills are strongly encouraged to apply.

Students will begin classes in January 2021 and complete the program in May 2022. 

The 20-month program joins the School’s current lineup of academic programs, including a 12-month Advanced Standing program for those with a BSW, three-year program options in Chapel Hill and Winston-Salem, and a two-year full-time program.

The 20-month program is open to any applicant who meets the criteria and who has an interest in direct practice or community management and policy practice. The program may be particularly attractive to working professionals who are employed with agencies and in positions that could be considered as a field experience.
