Program Overview

We have designed the online MSW program with multiple plans of study so you can choose the one that best fits your educational and professional background as well as your schedule. Along with a traditional track, we have an advanced standing track for those students who completed a bachelor’s degree in social work. Both options include four areas of focus:

  • Individuals and Families
  • Organizations and Community
  • Evaluation
  • Policy Practice and Advocacy
