"Hands Across Cultures: Social Work in Action"

The Clinical/Activist MSW program at Texas A&M University-Kingsville prepares graduates for advanced social work practice with the diverse populations and social service settings in the rural U.S./Mexico border and outlining regions.

We offer a two-year Master of Social Work (MSW) program for students who have graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in a field other than Social Work.  Students who have earned a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work (BSW) with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 within the past five years from a Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) accredited program may apply for Advanced Standing. The BSW must be received by the end of the spring semester/quarter prior to starting the MSW program.  The Advanced Standing program is one year of course work.

Applicants must apply to the university and meet all requirements for admission. Applicants must also meet specific MSW program admissions requirements. See the links to the left for additional information.
