If you are interested in a fast-track approach, you can finish your degree in three years instead of four. The three-year program requires you to remain focused on your studies year-round, as you will need to take classes during the summer session(s). If you choose to do a three-year program, you will work closely with your advisors to create a structured academic plan.
In the social work program, you complete a field practicum, or internship, in the last semester of your senior year. Some agencies require interns to be at least 21 years of age. Please take the age requirement into consideration when deciding on the three-year or four-year program. Some students who are under 21 when completing their internship do not secure their first choice practicum location.
