Recently, I was accepted into the two-year Master’ s of Social Work program at the University of Southern California for the Department of Social Change and Innovation (SCI). Aware of the financial demands of higher education, I view this next step as a necessary investment in my future. Obtaining a graduate education will enhance my skill set, allow for networking, build on-hand experience, and qualify me for a broader range of opportunities. Although social work is not a lucrative field, a master’s degree would improve my salary by opening doors for higher paying positions. Based on the demand for experienced social workers, a master’s program allows me to complete large amounts of field hours before graduation, making me a competent fit for future employers.
The estimated cost for the two-year program based on the 2018-2019 academic year
Semester 1: 15 units ($27,660)
Semester 2: 17 units ($27, 660)
Semester 3: 14 units ($26, 082)
Semester 4: 14 units ($26,082)
TOTAL 60 UNITS ($107,484)
I am aware that the $107,484 is a large and possibly unrealistic goal; however, any amount to decrease the need for a loan is greatly appreciated!
