Advanced Generalist vs Clinical


Recommended Posts

After spending months looking into MSWs and the astronomical costs of many of the programs, University of North Dakota's online program is starting to look extremely good! My biggest concern is the fact that it doesn't have a clinical track. I want to continue on to be a LCSW. Does going to a MSW program with an advanced generalist focus not line up with my career goals? What can one do with an advanced generalist concentration?

Not sure if this is you, but just in case it's not, there was a debate about this on another forum:




Not too sure what an "advanced generalist" track entails, but I would check the course work and see if it aligns with your interests. Another thing I did while searching for programs pertinent to may area of interest was to call that university and ask to speak with someone on the phone. Most, if not all, universities will have someone from that program willing to lend 10 minutes of their time. You may even be able to schedule a phone meeting with an advisor from that program. That way, you can tell them what you hope to do, and see if their program will help you to meet your goals. Alos, that way you can enquire about field placements in your area of interest as well.
