Glenwood Springs MSW program still accepting applications

Program begins in September 2015 at reduced tuition rate

GLENWOOD SPRINGS— The University of Denver’s two-year Western Colorado Master of Social Work (MSW) degree program, to be offered in Glenwood Springs for the second time beginning in September, is still accepting applications. Prospective students are urged to apply prior to June 1 for priority consideration, although applications will continue to be accepted until the cohort is full.

A Friday evening and Saturday class schedule has been arranged to accommodate the needs of working professionals, and the program combines both classroom and online instruction. Tuition is substantially lower than that paid by students at the University’s Denver campus. Financial assistance is available to qualified Western Colorado MSW students through Title IV-E child welfare stipends and graduate student loans administered by the University of Denver’s Office of Financial Aid.

The two-year MSW program that begins in September is available to applicants with a baccalaureate degree in an academic discipline other than social work, earned at a regionally accredited college or university. Applicants with a baccalaureate degree in social work may earn the MSW in one year, beginning in summer 2016, through the advanced standing program option.

This innovative program is specifically designed to meet the needs of rural and mountain communities in Western Colorado. The first cohort of 20 students will graduate from the program in June.
