  2. Eligibility for Barry’s 7 month Advanced Standing Master’s in Social Work program
    Students that graduate with a BSW degree would have completed the foundation year courses for social work practice. These foundation years courses, completed over the duration of your undergraduate career, are equivalent to 1st year graduate level courses towards the master’s in social work degree. As a result, BSW students are required to complete concentration year courses that spread out over a period of 2 semesters. Click here to review a sample of our 32 credit advanced standing curriculum
