Advantages of an MSW or DSW from Tulane University
At Tulane University’s School of Social Work, MSW and DSW students will work closely with dedicated professionals and professors, many of whom have years of practical experience in the field, and they will utilize the latest research to develop innovative and effective solutions for communities in need. With on campus and online options, these programs were designed to suit students' schedules with full- and part-time options.
The Social Mission at Our Core
The Master of Social Work and Doctorate in Social Work curriculum revolves around our adherence to the practice of culturally relevant social work. In brief, this means we prioritize communicating with the groups and people we work with, making every effort to understand their needs, and working with them to advocate for those needs.
Our Belief in the Benefit of Flexibility
We want to give students the opportunity to steep themselves in the lessons about resilience, innovation, and advocacy that we have learned in New Orleans and start thinking right away about how to apply them to the places where they live. We want to support our students in their decision to earn a master’s degree online from a top social work school and stay rooted in their own communities, and one way we demonstrate that is by prioritizing flexibility.
Learning by Doing
Enrolling in Tulane’s online MSW absolutely does not mean that students forfeit their opportunity to learn from fieldwork experiences. To the contrary, every student in Tulane’s School of Social Work must complete nearly 1,000 hours of fieldwork experience, which we will help students arrange in the places where they live. We value the lessons that can be learned only by doing, not to mention the relationships that can help launch our students into their careers.
At Tulane’s School of Social Work, we are proud of the fact that the curriculum we have honed for the accredited online Master of Social Work, on-ground MSW, and DSW programs is inseparable from and shaped by the lessons we have learned in this incredible city we call home. As a top social work school, we know that, as a result, we can prepare our students to do work that matters in their respective communities.
