Attending graduate school is a tremendous commitment. As a full time student, you can expect to dedicate at least 50 hours/week in classes, studying and in field placement. The Department of Social Work has resources to help you plan for and navigate the next 2 years as a full time graduate student, but it is up to you to ensure you make any necessary changes in your life to ensure graduate school can fit in
Here are some helpful resources:
If you have any questions about course scheduling or other information on this page, please contact the Office of Social Work Student Services.
The advising approach in the Office of Social Work Student Services (OSWSS) is different. Our student services team is a “one stop shop” across the entire student life span – from when you are a prospective student through when you will be an alum from one of our programs!
We advise with a team approach in the Department of Social Work, which means that every student accepted into the BSSW or MSW Program has two advisors to provide support and guidance: professional advisors (the team on our Social Work Advising website) and faculty advisors. While we take a collaborative approach in working with students, professional advisors (also called academic advisors) typically take the lead on helping students navigate the academic side of your program – class scheduling, degree planning, communicating policies and procedures, and linking you with campus resources as needed. Faculty advisors typically take the lead on supporting you through your academic career and professional goals, challenges in the classroom, and personal and professional difficulties. We will often work together when supporting students, so we encourage you to reach out to both of your advisors when you are unsure of who to reach out to for support. You don’t have to be an expert on who to reach out to, let us support you and be the expert. Your job is to just reach out!
During the fall semester, you will be assigned a both a professional advisor and a faculty advisor.
