Social workers are prepared for anything. That’s why our students are, too.
We prepare students to work in any setting and situation. That’s why our online MSW program is one of the few that is solely structured around advanced generalist practice (AGP). We also provide two days of on-site residency for students in the traditional program, which provides valuable hands-on experience to prepare you for the journey ahead, no matter where it leads.
