The school offers both the M.S.W. and B.S.W. degree programs in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Located in the heart of the city, both degree programs offer students the opportunity to choose practicum placements in urban or rural settings.  Albuquerque, the largest metropolitan city in the state, with a population of more than 600,000 is rich in cultural diversity with Hispanics representing 42 percent of the population.  The city is located within 30 minutes of five Indian pueblos and within a 50-mile drive to Santa Fe, NM.

Our Albuquerque program is the only location that offers all three program concentrations:

Clinical Practice
Bilingual/Bicultural Clinical Practice
Government Nonprofit Management

In addition, we also offer students the opportunity to seek completion of the dual degrees program, M.S.W./M.B.A. and completion of a specialized certificate program in substance abuse counseling.

We also offer the Advanced Standing honors program at our Albuquerque campus. This campus has the largest number of students enrolled in both the B.S.W. and M.S.W. programs. The average yearly enrollment exceeds 240 students, with a student population that is ethnically diverse mirroring the population of the city and state.

Classes for both degree programs are offered day and evenings. Students may attend daytime or evening classes or a combination of days and evenings. Students can also attend on a full-time or part-time basis.
