Chelmsford Campus

Initially housed at the University of Lowell, this program was started in 1985, moved to Tyngsboro in 1991, and relocated to Chelmsford in 2009. The Chelmsford Campus is conveniently located near Route 3, Route 495, and the Lowell Connector and offers convenient access to individuals from northern and western Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Maine.

This part-time program offers a flexible alternative for students seeking an adult learning, cohort model of education. The program allows students to manage job and/or family responsibilities while being enrolled in a MSW program at a renowned university.

Classes are held on Fridays from 6 to 9 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Students take one course at a time. Internships in the second and third years are scheduled on weekdays and are available within students’ own communities. Although this program is part-time according to University credit hours, it is an intensive program that requires work-time flexibility, especially during the second and third years of the program, when students are enrolled in courses and a field internship. Students complete the entire program at the Chelmsford Campus.
