Information Sessions

The Office of Social Work Student Services, Administration, and Finance is rethinking the traditional information session with our unique approach - Lunch Break Chats. These text based chats allow you to ask questions and receive answers from members of our team from anywhere you have an internet connection.

We also have program and admissions basics videos to give you an overview of everything the Department of Social Work MSW Program has to offer - program and admissions basics videos are in development for the BSSW Program, check back in fall 2020 for more information!

If you have any questions about our programs or admissions process, please email us at socialwork@msudenver.edu


Bachelor of Science in Social Work Program Lunch Break Chats

Thank you for your interest in the BSSW Program at MSU Denver! We don't have any upcoming lunch break chats, but if you sign up for our prospective student list you will be notified when more dates become available!

BSSW Program Lunch Break Chats begin with a short 10 minute presentation about the BSSW Program, application, and how the Office of Social Work Student Services can support you, followed by an open chat where you can ask questions and get answers from OSWSS team members. The chat portion is completely text based, no webcam or microphone required! We look forward to answering your questions and guiding you on your journey!
