M.S.W. Online

The online M.S.W. program welcomes new students three times a year—in fall, spring, and summer. Each term comprises two eight-week sessions. This provides a more manageable balance of coursework and field education, especially for students who choose to enroll in full-time M.S.W. study, because students take two courses in each eight-week session during the semester. Our online M.S.W. program combines the best of both worlds, where you will meet weekly with your professor and classmates in interactive synchronous sessions as well as pace your own learning with asynchronous course content.
