Instructions for selecting a curriculum plan



When registering for classes each semester, students should refer to their curriculum plan. The curriculum plans are used to ensure that students proceed through the MSSW program as quickly and successfully as possible.  Students are required to follow their chosen curriculum plan every semester when registering for courses.

Please note: All students initial an agreement when admitted that they will follow their chosen curriculum plan while at the Kent School.  Before making any changes to their chosen curriculum plan, students must have the approval of the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs, Dr. Anna Faul.  Adding/Dropping classes not indicated on the curriculum plan may delay the students’ graduation date and/or affect their financial aid award!


Go to the appropriate section to select a curriculum plan:
