MSW Information Sessions and Events

The information sessions will be presented by topical areas so that you will have the opportunity to meet faculty, administrators, field placement representatives, and hopefully some of your future classmates. You will be provided with information detailing the school’s program, curriculum, field education placements, financial aid opportunities, student support services, as well as the admissions application process in information sessions segmented by topics rather than one large overview to increase remote joining capability.

A detailed confirmation will be emailed to you shortly before the program date.   

Thank you, again, for your interest in the University of Pittsburgh School of Social Work.
