OnlineMSWPrograms.com has made it easy for students to find some of the best online degrees in social work by delivery method (online versus hybrid), by program length (full-time versus part-time), and by those offering advanced standing programs. We have created pages dedicated to specific types of online social work degree programs and have included a comprehensive list of CSWE accredited schools on each page. All schools are listed alphabetically so that it is easy to browse programs by name.
Online master’s degrees in social work are classified as those that either do not require any campus visits or only require a limited number of campus visits during the program. On OnlineMSWPrograms.com, we classify any program that requires two or fewer campus visits per year as an online program. Programs that have a campus requirement are clearly noted on the site.
