Master of Social Work

Online MSW

The Online MSW (OMSW) Program offers the same 60 credit hour program and 30 credit Advanced Standing options as the campus based MSW program. The program prepares beginning generalist and advanced social work practitioners to practice competently and effectively with urban families, groups, organizations, and communities. The program is committed to the alleviation of human suffering and the improvement of the quality of life for urban residents. Because African Americans make up a substantial percentage of the urban population, and are over-represented among urban residents facing unrelenting social and economic problems, the program has a major focus on preparing its graduates to address, systematically and strategically, issues of poverty and socioeconomic disadvantage, interpersonal and community violence, substance abuse and mental health problems, social injustice and discrimination. At this time, the Online MSW (OMSW) Program offers areas of specialized practice in Urban Children, Youth, and Families and Addictions.
