The MSW@USC program mirrors the stringent curriculum and academic rigor of the on-campus program delivered by our regular, full-time faculty. The foundation-year curriculum provides a common base of knowledge, skills and values by introducing theories, issues and practice methods that deal with individuals and their environment. The second half of the curriculum offers advanced training in a concentration area to develop in-depth knowledge and skills in Families and Children; Community Organization, Planning and Administration (COPA); Social Work and Business in a Global Society, Health; or Mental Health. You can also choose a concentration in military social work to add to your professional development.
Please see our Curriculum Snapshot for an overview of courses by semester.
