Our Clinical Practice intervention method prepares you for a broad range of careers and focuses on direct service to those in need. Our new macro intervention method, Social Innovation + Leadership, focuses on providing current and future leaders of the public and social service sectors with access to the latest thinking on social innovation. M.S.W. students may choose a two-year full-time program or a three- or four-year program, and have the option to take classes at our campuses in Chestnut Hill and Worcester, MA. Enrollment in the doctoral program is full time only with a two-year residency requirement.
