Master of Social Work
The Online MSW Program option at Boston University School of Social Work allows applicants interested in a graduate social work education to earn an MSW degree by enrolling in our innovative online program. This part-time course of study in Clinical Practice or Macro Practice offers three options to complete the MSW.
Utilizing a convenient online learning format, the program allows individuals to earn an MSW degree while continuing to live and work in their own communities. Students take the required and elective courses online; and complete one or two field internships (depending upon relevant work experience) within or near their geographic area.
Courses are taught by Boston University’s faculty who are committed to continue to provide leadership, mentorship, and to share their expertise and current research initiatives in the online Master of Social Work Program.
