Enrollment, Orientation, Scholarship of Admissions questions

Need to Contact our Admissions Coordinator, Ms. Blythe Landry. You can reach her at


You can also share with me so that I can help you to reach with the respective department. You can either post me your queries in this blog or email me at

Do I have to have a BSW in order to apply for the MSW?

  • No – any BA degree is sufficient.

Students from all different fields are welcome. For instance, I earned my undergraduate degree in Business Administration. So, the more diverse your field is, the more learning environment a class can have.

Length of time for Completion of Programs

  • Certificates – 1 year
  • MSW – 2 years full time, 3-4 years part time
  • PhD – 2 years of coursework plus dissertation

So, these are the basic admission guidelines to School of Social Work Program at LUC.
