MSW Info Sessions

Want to learn more about our MSW program options? Attend an info session, either virtually or in person. Although applicants are not required to attend an info session, we strongly recommend that you do. Currently, the majority of our info sessions are offered virtually.

Program representatives participate in various graduate school recruitment events and professional conferences throughout the year. Please visit our list of upcoming recruitment events for additional opportunities to speak with our representatives.

What happens at an info session?

You’ll learn about the application process. You’ll meet some of our faculty, staff, and students. You’ll gain an overview of coursework, field placements, financial aid, and more. Each info session includes a formal presentation, and you’ll have plenty of opportunities to ask questions.

What if I can’t attend an info session in person?

If you can’t attend in person, consider participating in a virtual info session (marked by the word VIRTUAL in the list). You will need a device with an internet connection and audio capabilities (speaker/headphones) to participate in a virtual info session. Advance registration for virtual info sessions is required so that we can send you instructions for access.
