Year 1 of the 2-Year MSW Full-Time Program – Fall 2020 and Winter 2021

(Last updated September 11, 2020)

Fall courses will in all likelihood be delivered through remote/online formats this coming Fall. The following timetable indicates the planned mode of online course delivery using the following codes:

FA: Fully asynchronous (course has no scheduled virtual class time slot as it is completely web-based).

S: Fully synchronous or a mixture of synchronous/asynchronous (course has a scheduled virtual class time slot that will include at least some live virtual class time over an online meeting platform).


All courses are subject to sufficient enrollment. Click on Course Number for Course Description. Click on Instructor for Instructor’s Bio.

Our policy is that after the first week of classes the first year sections are set. We do not allow switches unless there are major extenuating circumstances.

Lunch & Meetings (Fall & Winter Terms)   M 12-1:30
GSA Activities (Fall & Winter Terms)          T 12-1:30
