UW-Green Bay MSW Program
Admissions Information for Academic Year 2017-18

The UW - Green Bay Master of Social Work (MSW) Program offers full and part-time enrollment options for both foundation and advanced students (see Admissions Criteria). The MSW Program offers an Advanced Generalist concentration with an Individualized Area of Emphasis. The MSW Program seeks applicants with demonstrated human services experience and sensitivity to multi-cultural practice, social justice, and leadership/advocacy.

Applications for the 2017-2018 academic year will be posted in August and will be due December 1st. Admission applications and specific instructions for submission can be found on the MSW Program website at this link: Applicants are strongly encouraged to apply early so as to allow ample time to assemble and submit the required materials.

Criminal background and caregiver background checks may be required for MSW field placements and are a required component of obtaining Social Work certification/licensing. The results of the checks may determine a student’s ability to obtain a field placement or employment in particular areas and/or Social Work certification in the state of Wisconsin. Please refer to the Admissions Criteria page for more details. If you have any questions or concerns based on your particular situation, please contact the Social Work office, and you will be directed to the appropriate Program Coordinator (; 920-465-2049).
