News & Info Sessions: BASW and MSW Programs in the UW School of Social Work

Upcoming Information Sessions for the BASW & MSW Programs:

The School of Social Work has several information sessions for our BASW and MSW programs scheduled throughout the autumn quarter. Students are invited to meet with a member of our Admissions team for a brief discussion of the profession of social work, our curriculum and admissions application process, followed by Q&A.

Our next BASW information session will be held on Nov. 15th and our next MSW information session will be held on Nov. 14th. Students may register for upcoming information sessions by visiting the School of Social Work admissions web page.

Important Program Prerequisite Change to the MSW Program:

Effective autumn 2014, the human biology requirement is being incorporated into the first-year MSW foundation coursework. Students who are entering autumn 2014 are no longer required to provide proof of completion of a human biology course outside of the MSW program.

Completion of the statistics requirement is still required for all newly admitted students in order to take Soc W 506. This is not an admissions requirement nor is it factored in the admission decision. Students who are admitted into the program must submit official transcripts AND complete the review form in order to have the statistics requirement reviewed.

For more information:

For copies of our Viewbook or questions about admissions, please contact our Admissions Office at 206-543-5676.
