Online MSW Programs in Kentucky (KY)

The University of Louisville has the only school of social work with a campus in Kentucky and a fully online MSW program. Its Kent School of Social Work offers two online Master of Science in Social Work (MSSW) programs, which are equivalent to a Master of Social Work (MSW). Both are accredited by the Council on Social Work Education. Instruction for the Kent School of Social Work’s online MSSW may be delivered synchronously or asynchronously, depending on the professor. While these classes are fully online and do not require students to visit campus, field education is a requirement and must be completed at a local health services agency.

Please note: All online MSW programs require students to complete field education at a local health services agency.

The Kent School of Social Work’s MSSW has both traditional and advanced standing tracks, as well as optional concentrations in Mental Health, Psychosocial Oncology, Military Social Work, Alcohol and Drug Counseling, and Gerontology. The traditional track is 60 credits and requires a total of 900 hours of field education. It may be completed in two years full time or two and a half to three years part time. The advanced standing track is only 30 credits and requires a total of 450 hours of field education. It may be completed in one year full time or two years part time.

In addition to The University of Louisville’s Kent School of Social Work, students residing in Kentucky have several out-of-state online MSW and MSSW options. There are 25 out-of-state universities offering online MSW or MSSW programs that accept students from Kentucky. The majority of these are fully online and do not require students to visit campus while earning their degrees, but five do necessitate a limited number of visits. For students who want the flexibility of online courses yet would still like to meet their professors and classmates in person, these particular programs may be ideal.

Several out-of-state online MSW and MSSW programs also have the same tuition rate for in-state and out-of-state students, so prospective students would be wise to research as many options as possible. To learn more about a program, click on the school’s name below.
