As an aspiring social worker, you know the importance of working with people to understand their motivations, challenges and goals. The strength of our Master of Social Work program is in its community, and we strive to bring together diverse individuals to support and guide one another through their personal and academic journey. Every aspect of the online program is designed to encourage and facilitate your learning experience.
As a student in the online MSW program, all curriculum and community interactions are conducted through the online campus. We created an intuitive user experience so you can focus on what's most important: your social work education.
The online campus allows you to:
- Chat with classmates and instructors in real time, during classes or between sessions.
- Create and discuss presentations, share files and start discussions within small groups.
- Monitor your learning and growth with immediate access to assignments and grades.
- Use the calendar to keep track of classes, coursework and personal scheduling.
And with our mobile app, you can access the online campus from a variety of devices, including your tablet and mobile phone.
Live, Online Classes
Your weekly classes are delivered seminar-style by our faculty. Classes are not lectures, but an active learning environment where you and your classmates come together to explore concepts, ideas and questions.
Classes are kept small to ensure you receive personal attention and have the opportunity to collaborate and form relationships.
Collaboration in the Classroom
During your classes, your professor can divide you and your classmates into break-out rooms to discuss a topic or case as a smaller group, as well as create quizzes and polls to gauge understanding of course topics. And because you have access to your personal virtual classroom 24/7, you can create social, study or networking groups between class sessions.
Our faculty have extensive training in the development and facilitation of online courses. The online MSW coursework is as rigorous as our on-campus programs — coursework includes downloadable videos, readings, group activities and case studies. Self-paced assignments are discussed in weekly live classes and are designed to reinforce social work concepts you can apply at your field internship.
Learning on Your Schedule
You can access the online campus from your phone or tablet with the mobile app. Download videos, readings and other assignments to complete when you’re offline, and upload your progress when you have access to the internet.
We are proud of our supportive social work community, and you will always be connected through the online campus. You will build your personal profile, which will allow you to connect with your classmates and professors. With 24/7 access to a private virtual classroom, you can form study groups and have one-on-one office hours with your professors outside of class.
Our support includes access to a variety of resources throughout your education, including technical support, university resources, the library and career services.
Connections That Last
You and your classmates will learn together and challenge each other in a supportive environment. You’ll meet up on the online campus for study groups, assignment discussions and dialogue about social justice issues.
