The University of Pittsburgh and Pitt-Johnstown have partnered to offer the Master of Social Work program at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown.

It is a part-time program offered by the University of Pittsburgh School of Social Work.

The MSW program’s goal is to prepare graduates who have the specialized knowledge and skills needed to engage in empirically supported and culturally competent advanced social work practice. The MSW program at Pitt-Johnstown offers a concentration in direct practice with individuals, families, and small groups, with a specialization in mental health. A new cohort of accepted students may start every two years, completing six credits a semester for 10 consecutive semesters. Students may successfully complete the MSW in in three and a half years. 

Geared toward working professionals, all classes are held in the evenings on the Pitt-Johnstown campus. The Pitt-Johnstown MSW program shares the same academic goals, standards, and requirements as the program at the Pittsburgh campus.
