MARION - MARION, Ind. -- Indiana Wesleyan University is launching an accredited Master of Social Work program at the IWU-Marion campus. Officials say IWU is the only Council for Christian Colleges & Universities school in the state with an accredited residential MSW program. 
 
The program is currently being built based on the current online program through IWU-National & Global. The new residential MSW hybrid program is designed for both face-to-face classroom time and online learning. 
 
The residential MSW program is set to have two tracks based on educational pre-requisites, and will allow students to sign up for an accelerated advanced standing track or a two-year standard track.

The advanced standing track is a 30-credit-hour curriculum for students who hold a Bachelor of Social Work. This track is expected to launch in Fall 2020. 

The Standard Track is a 60-credit-hour program for students who hold a bachelor’s degree in another discipline. This track is slated to launch in Fall 2021.
