Online MSW Degree Programs (CSWE-Accredited)

Online programs can be a wonderful option for getting your master’s in social work (MSW), especially if you work full-time or have other obligations that make traditional on-campus learning challenging.

The organization CSWE (Council on Social Work Education) ensures the educational quality of MSW programs by according accreditation to schools of social work that meet its standards. As part of its work, the CSWE maintains a directory of schools that have self-reported to offer online social work education at the master’s level.

For any school that you are seriously considering, you should research the current status of the program’s online curriculum, whether they offer advanced standing for BSW graduates if you hold the degree to cut down on the length of your MSW, and how the school handles in-person hours.
