The online Master of Social Work program features the same curriculum content as our on-campus program. Our dedicated admissions counselors can help you determine which path of study you should pursue based on your social work background.
Online Traditional MSW
For those with a bachelor’s degree in an area other than social work. The 60-credit curriculum can be completed in as few as 36 months.
Online MSW students develop a range of skills needed to practice across different settings with diverse groups of people. You will learn to:
demonstrate ethical and professional behavior;
engage diversity and difference in practice;
advance human rights and social, economic and environmental justice;
engage in practice-informed research and research-informed practice;
engage in policy practice; and
engage, assess, intervene and evaluate practice with individuals, families, groups, organizations and communities.
For each path of study, you will choose a concentration that aligns with your desired social work career.
Advanced Clinical Practice (ACP) Concentration
The Advanced Clinical Practice MSW concentration is designed for those who wish to become mental health clinicians and practice as licensed clinical social workers (LCSW). Clinical social workers typically practice clinical mental health, specifically in diagnosis and psychotherapy, in outpatient and inpatient settings.
Advanced Integrated Practice (AIP) Concentration
The Advanced Integrated Practice MSW concentration is designed for those who wish to pursue direct practice and leadership in a wide range of increasingly complex human service organizations. Students can go on to lead not-for-profit organizations, guide service users through complex health care systems, assess the strengths and needs of communities and individuals, engage in social research, serve in public office or facilitate adoption.
