Master of Social Work • Joplin

Missouri State University offers the complete MSW in Joplin!

The Joplin MSW program is geared toward non-traditional students. Classes are held in the late afternoons and evenings, Monday through Thursday.

The program is offered in two formats, one for advanced standing students who have completed an accredited BSW program, and one for regular standing students who have a bachelor's degree in an area other than social work or who do not otherwise meet the requirements for advanced standing. Advanced standing students can complete the program with 34 credit hours, while regular standing students take 62 credit hours. Courses are taught by full time faculty members or local experts in the field. Students are able to complete internship experiences at approved locations in the Joplin area or near their places of residence.

The deadline for receiving all application materials is 5pm on the last working day in January of the year in which you wish to be admitted.
