A minimum of six credits of electives are required in the MSW curriculum*. A wide range of courses are offered and have been approved as electives for students in the UW-Green Bay MSW Program. Course descriptions can be found in the UW-Green Bay Graduate Catalog.
In addition, students may contact the MSW Program Coordinator and request that an alternative elective course be approved. The course must fit within the Program’s mission and goals, and be congruent with the Advanced Generalist concentration or Individualized Area of Emphasis. All requested courses must be graduate level in both scope and content. Students may also develop an Independent Study course as an elective. Independent Study courses must be reviewed and approved by the student’s faculty advisor and the MSW Program Coordinator.
(*Students must complete a total of 30 credits to receive a graduate degree from UW-Green Bay. Therefore, students who are admitted to the MSW Program at advanced standing must complete a minimum of 8 elective credits.)
