Master of Social Work Degree Programs
Students may earn a Master of Social Work (MSW) degree on one of two levels and formats. The foundation level is designed for students whose undergraduate degree is not in social work, while the advanced standing level is tailored to students who have completed a BSSW degree within 10 years or have previously completed the MSW foundation level courses.
Whether you choose traditional on the UNO campus in Omaha NE, weekends only on the UNK campus in Kearney NE, or the totally online format, UNO offers a program that will fit your schedule. Graduate students who are interested in any of these degree programs should contact Grace Abbott School of Social Work.
Contact MSW Program Coordinator, Ciara Warden for more information about our MSW program.
Dual DegreesThe dual degree programs offer interdisciplinary preparation in two fields, requiring fewer credit hours than it would take to obtain each degree independently.
- For students seeking a dual degree focused on agency and program planning, policy, administration and evaluation, we offer a Master of Public Administration and Master of Social Work (MPA/MSW).
- For those with an interest in criminal justice, we offer a Master of Social Work and Master of Science in Criminology and Criminal Justice dual degree (MSW/MSCRCJ).
- The Master of Social Work and Master of Public Health (MSW/MPH) dual degree program is a collaborative effort between the Grace Abbott School of Social Work and the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Public Health.
- Managing Juvenile and Adult Population Certificate (MJAP) is for students that desire to work with juveniles and adults who are in contact with the criminal justice system as victims, offender, or family members, and can be added to any graduate degree.
