Dordt University’s new Master of Social Work (MSW) is now accepting applications for fall 2020 for both regular and advanced standing students. Dordt was previously only offering a fall 2020 start date for regular standing students, but is now accepting applications for advanced standing students who want to attend part-time as working professionals.

“We are excited that we can accept BSW applicants for Advanced Standing this fall—this will give those with a BSW and an interest in furthering their education the opportunity to pursue an MSW,” says Dr. Erin Olson, program director.

Students who have graduated with a Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) can be considered for advanced standing. These students can join the program while working in their current position in the industry. Regular standing is designed for those students who have a bachelor’s degree in a non-social work area of study or who need updated social work coursework.
