New Orleans is a city of resilience, one committed to social justice and compassionate progress. Here at Tulane University, we believe wholeheartedly in upholding the community spirit that keeps New Orleans moving forward. Tulane, in fact, lays claim to the distinction of having housed the first training program of social workers in the Deep South. We’ve had decades to build on our innovative, audacious beginning, and Newsweek recently named us one of the top 25 most service-minded schools. Our students are part of the reason why. Because we strive to maintain the high standard we established over a century ago, Tulane’s online Master of Social Work program is highly competitive.
