Full-time/Part-time Online MSW

Students enrolled in the traditional MSW program may choose from our online or our on-campus program. Courses incorporate a variety of learning experiences, including team projects, problem-based learning, creative simulation, and fieldwork, to form a truly “clinical community” curriculum based on relationship-centered practice. Students in the online or on-campus programs can earn the MSW in as little as 16 months or four semesters for full-time students and as little as 32 months or eight semesters for part-time students. Upon graduation, students are prepared to do work that matters in their local communities.
