About this course

Entry Requirements

  • a master’s degree from an accredited graduate school of social work, counseling psychology, or a master’s degree in a closely related field.
  • demonstration of a superior graduate school record: that is, a grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale.
  • mastery of written and spoken English.
  • personal therapy experience is not required as a prerequisite for admission, though such experience is favorably considered.
  • at least baseline licensure in the State where they practice (i.e., LSW, LCP, etc.) by the time ICSW classes begin; applicants without baseline licensure may be admitted on the condition that they receive baseline licensure by the start of classes. Once classes begin, we expect students with baseline licensure to be working actively toward receiving terminal licensure (i.e., LCSW, LCPC), following their State’s guidelines regarding clinical supervision.
  • an active weekly clinical caseload; ICSW doctoral students need to discuss their clinical work regularly, both in class and in consultation with members of the faculty.
