Clinical Track

The clinical social work track prepares students to work directly with individuals, families, and groups to restore, maintain, and enhance bio-psychosocial-spiritual functioning through multidimensional assessment, diagnosis, and treatment. The MSW clinical track program prepares students to sit for the Licensed Master Social Work (LMSW) exam upon graduation, and provides the 12-credit hours of clinical courses to sit for the Licensed Clinical Social Work (LCSW) exam upon completion of appropriate clinical supervision (usually 3-years post-LMSW). Students on the clinical track will take all general MSW courses and the following four specific clinical courses: The range of the human condition; Assessment and formulation in social work practice with people with disabilities; Modalities of practice with people with disabilities; Integrative social work practice with people with disabilities.
