Our Doctor of Social Work curriculum is offered in a low-residency format—a hybrid of online courses and periodic on-campus Saturdays where you’ll engage in meaningful discussions and faculty-led experiences on campus and in the Louisville-area. Students can choose to complete their degree in three or four years and tailored to your track of study: Advanced Clinical Practice or Leadership and Administration.
DSW students complete 48 to 51 credit hours of doctoral-level course work.

Summer research and publication
There are no classes during the summertime. Therefore, you can engage in optional research and scholarship during this time. It’s a great opportunity to build your curriculum vitae with as few as four publications or scholarly presentations. You’ll work collaboratively with a team of peers alongside a faculty mentor. All research and writing can be completed online from your home locale.
