Academic Clinical Content in the MSW Program
INFORMATION CONCERNING CLINICAL HOURS FOR THE LICSW
The MSW Program at SCSU is an Advanced Generalist Program, which means that we prepare students to work in a variety of settings with diverse populations. However, those wishing to someday obtain the LICSW level of Board licensure will receive hours towards the 360 needed for the LICSW. On average, Advanced Standing students will receive between 200-290 clinical hours, and Foundation students will receive up to 100 additional hours.
- Graduates of the SCSU MSW Program are able to go to this webpage to ascertain the number of academic clinical content hours in each clinical knowledge area by going to the appropriate academic year of attendance. The Board of Social Work will accept this Academic Clinical Content Grid as an attachment to Form 1. Certification of Clinical Clock Hours by Official of Graduate Degree Program Accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE).
The MSW Program will post on its webpage available courses at SCSU that may meet the academic clinical content hours. Updates will occur annually. Due to potential and unforeseen changes to courses, syllabi, and individual needs, the MSW Program cannot verify the exact number of clinical content hours and each clinical knowledge areas for other allied disciplines and graduate programs at SCSU. Verification will be the responsibility of the individual student. Individuals may seek out academic clinical content through other accredited institutions of higher learning.
