UW Oshkosh and UW Green Bay Collaborative MSW Program
The Collaborative Masters of Social Work (MSW) Program became a reality in Fall 2003 with the admission of the first class of students. A joint venture of the UW-Green Bay and UW Oshkosh Departments of Social Work, the Collaborative MSW Program prepares social workers for leadership in careers of Direct Practice or Administration and Management.
Applications for the Collaborative MSW Program are Now Available
For the fall 2014 MSW admissions application, applicants must apply directly to UW Oshkosh and UW-Green Bay. Applicants may apply to both institutions.
UW Oshkosh and UW-Green Bay are seeking to terminate the Collaborative MSW Program in Summer 2015. Both universities are seeking authorization and accreditation of separate MSW Programs. If an applicant is enrolled at either UW Oshkosh or UW-Green Bay, s/he will begin the MSW Program as a student of the Collaborative MSW Program. Students who complete the MSW Collaborative Program by August 2015 will graduate from the Collaborative MSW Program. Those who plan to complete their degree after August 2015 will likely graduate from the MSW Program at the home campus in which they are enrolled.
