The bachelor of science/master of social work (BS/MSW) program is for Springfield College undergraduate students in the Department of Social Science who are already majoring in social work-related fields and who wish to pursue a master of social work through the College.
The program enables undergraduate students with a major in criminal justice, sociology, or youth development, to earn a BS and MSW in four undergraduate academic years, one summer, and one academic year of graduate study.
Eligibility for the BS/MSW program is open to Springfield College undergraduate students with a major in criminal justice, sociology, or youth development who have an overall CPA of 3.0 by the end of the fall semester of their third or junior year, and who have completed at least 81 semester hours of undergraduate credit. Students must also have completed two semester hours of undergraduate field experience with a grade of B or better. Students who wish to pursue the MSW program at Springfield College must submit a letter of interest to the admissions coordinator at the School of Social Work, accompanied by a letter of recommendation from their undergraduate faculty advisor and a working transcript not later than March 15 of the spring semester of the junior or third undergraduate year. The School of Social Work Admissions Committee reviews requests for admission to these courses. A complete formal application to the MSW program is required in the spring semester of the fourth or senior year and additional eligibility requirements apply. For more information on the BS/MSW program, students should consult with their undergraduate faculty advisor in the Department of Social Science.
