Since 1968, The University of Iowa School of Social Work has offered a part-time program in the Quad Cities. It is administered by the School of Social Work in cooperation with the Division of Continuing Education. The program is fully accredited by the Council on Social Work Education and is structured so that a cohort of about 30 students is admitted once every three years. The next cohort will begin in May 2022.

Students register for an average of two courses each semester, and complete the degree in three years. Scheduling is structured to assist working students with most courses offered after 5:00 pm or through intensive formats. Students may take up to 12 hours of electives prior to admission with permission.

The Quad Cities has an extensive network of social workers who can serve as practicum and course instructors. Students from diverse academic and experiential backgrounds are valued and actively recruited by the program. A history of engagement in human services and cross cultural perspectives is desirable.
