Programs of Study
The MSW program prepares students for advanced social work practice in an area of concentration with the knowledge, skills, values and ethical principles necessary to practice with Hispanic, American Indian, and other diverse populations of New Mexico and the Southwest. The three areas of concentration offered include: clinical practice; leadership and administration; and bilingual/bicultural clinical practice. The program prepares students at an advanced level to analyze and evaluate the role of the social work practitioner in the delivery of human services.
The school offers three types of programs to meet each student’s academic and personal needs. The three programs include: advanced standing; full time; and part time. Students MUST complete the MSW program within five calendar years from the date of admission.
