MSW Information Sessions

This fall, we are hosting two on-campus sessions for prospective St. Thomas MSW students to hear from, and interact with, a panel of faculty and alumni. The sessions will cover many of the distinctive features of the program, including input from our faculty and alums about "Why Clinical Social Work?" and "Why the St. Thomas MSW for your degree in clinical social work?"  These sessions are designed to be more interactive and conversational than a traditional information session and will NOT provide a step-by-step overview of the program. For this, we encourage you to view the 2020 MSW overview slides (link below) in advance of the session so you'll understand the basics and be able to come with your questions ready!

  • Tuesday, October 1, 7 - 8:30 pm, University of St. Thomas. REGISTER HERE»
  • Thursday, November 21, 7 - 8:30 pm, University of St. Thomas. REGISTER HERE»

*If you can't attend an on-campus session, you can view the recording of the November 2018 session (NOTE: the session is 1 1/2 hours total length) HERE»
