The UAB Department of Social Work offers three program options for admitted MSW students. Students are approved for Advanced Standing if they have a BSW degree from a CSWE-accredited social work program, while students with undergraduate degrees in subjects other than social work follow the Regular Program curriculum.

Advanced Standing students can choose to attend Full-Time or Part-Time. The Full-Time Advanced Standing program is completed in three semesters. The Part-Time option is designed for Advanced Standing students who need to maintain outside employment while completing their MSW degree or who wish to complete their degree at a more relaxed pace. Advanced Standing students complete the Part-Time program in two and a half years.

Regular Program students attend on a Full-Time basis and complete the MSW program in four semesters.
