Upon admission to the MSW, students receive credit for the 24 units of coursework completed in the two certificate programs at the University of Calgary and complete 12 units of Field Practicum, Integrative Seminar, Research Applications and Exit Requirement. Students must apply to the MSW degree within five years from the beginning of their first graduate certificate in Social Work.
