The UGA Extended-Time Master of Social Work Program (formerly the MSW Part-Time Program) is located at the UGA Gwinnett Campus in metro Atlanta. Students are admitted only in the fall semester and progress through the program with their cohort for three consecutive years or eight semesters.

All classes are offered after 5:00 p.m. or on Saturday. In their second year, students are required to spend 16 hours/week in field internships, and third-year students must complete a 24-hour/week, two-semester field placement. Field internships are conducted under professional supervision and are primarily held at the field sites during weekday business hours.

The MSW degree meets all educational requirements leading to licensing as a social worker in Georgia.

Information sessions are conducted periodically for potential students by the admission director or other representatives at the Gwinnett Campus. To enroll or for more information, contact  Dr. Leon Banks at 706 542-5428 or, or contact Mumbi Mwaura at or (706) 542-5450.
