The Part-Time Program at MSASS
Are you working or raising a family? If so, you can enjoy the flexibility of the part-time MSSA program offered at The Mandel School.
At the Mandel School, students may opt to complete their master’s degrees on a part-time basis during their first year. During the second and third years of this social science program, students will complete field education requirements and carry a full-time or nearly full-time load.
Students earning master’s degrees on a part-time basis take classes from the full-time weekday schedule and receive the same high-quality education.
These classes meet once a week for two hours. Employed social workers may participate in the extended degree program provided they can arrange a flexible work schedule.
The part-time social science program may be completed in three to four years.
Students granted advanced standing may complete the social science program in fewer semesters. Part-time degree students are required to register for a minimum of six credit hours per semester in their first year.
Students begin their foundation field education placement (601 and 602) during the second year in this format. The advanced placement (603 and 604) is completed during the fall and spring semesters of the third year.
