University of Illinois School of Social Work to host iMSW informational meetings in Urbana, Chicago, Moline and Peoria.


The School of Social Work team is reaching out to prospective students across the state to present information about the iMSW, an innovative graduate study option for social work offered by the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. 

The iMSW is a part-time graduate option designed to offer flexibility for working students to obtain a Master’s in Social Work. Current working professionals or anyone considering a career-change to social work may choose from a hybrid-online Advanced Clinical track with limited weekend face-to-face sessions, or the 100% online Leadership and Social Change track for those with a macro interest in social work. Students with a social work undergraduate degree from a CSWE-accredited institution will be considered for the advanced standing program.
