The Department of Social Work at North Carolina Central University is committed to recruiting applicants from diverse backgrounds. We are seeking students who are interested in working in a broad range of social work practice settings where children and juveniles and their families are the populations of interest. For example, we are seeking students who will work to enhance the quality of life for poor and oppressed populations living in urban areas.
The MSW Program is a two-year full time program. Classes are conducted on Tuesday and Thursday evenings (6:00-8:30) and all day on Saturday (9:00-4:00).
Students are in their field placement 16 hours a week (2 days) during the foundation/1st year of the program; and, 24 hours a week (3 days) during the advanced/concentration or 2nd year of the program. There are no exceptions to field. The Director of Field Education cannot guarantee evening or weekend placements. All students must satisfy the practicum hours to be in compliance with our accrediting agency, the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) and to meet the eligibility requirements for candidacy.
In addition to the admission requirements of Graduate Studies, applicants requesting admission into the MSW program must meet the following requirements:
A personal interview with the MSW faculty may be required of an applicant in order to better evaluate his/her potential for becoming a professional social work practitioner.
Although we seek students with life experience and previous work experience, we do not grant social work credit for these experiences.
The MSW Program at North Carolina Central University does not offer an Advanced Standing Program. Applicants who are transferring from a MSW program accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) may transfer up to six credits of courses taken during the foundation year/1st year and earned a grade of B or better in those courses.
