About

social worker talking to someone

Our program is small so we are able to offer a welcoming and supportive environment to all of our students. We offer classes primarily in Middletown, OH, although students also take a single class at Miami’s Oxford campus. Each campus provides a relaxed and idyllic setting. Classes are offered primarily in the late afternoons or evenings, Monday through Thursday, to accommodate students’ busy lives.

All students also complete field practicum hours where they develop knowledge and skills in a local agency. We have partnerships with over 100 non-profit agencies, schools, hospitals, and local Veterans Affairs.

The Traditional program is for students with an undergraduate degree in a field besides Social Work or a BSW completed more than 5 years ago. The application deadline is February 15th of every year.

 
Courses are all offered in a hybrid format so students don’t come to campus weekly.

No GRE required!

The tuition rate for students in the graduate degree in social work program does not follow the standard graduate tuition rates. As a student in this program, the per credit hour rate is $700, regardless of where you live (Ohio resident, non-Ohio resident or international). Since this program does not follow the standard graduate tuition rate, students are not eligible for some university funding opportunities, such as a grant-in-aid, graduate assistantship, or the TEAM scholarship. Students may be eligible for other scholarships, financial assistance, or on-campus employment opportunities.
