A Unique Online Social Work Program Designed for Today’s World
Students in the online MSW program get a hands-on look at social work theory, practice and clinical skills required to address the many challenges in our communities and develop solutions for a better quality of life. Field education internships offer first-hand learning experiences with clients and patients, giving students an opportunity to engage and collaborate with other social work professionals.
Learn from faculty who bring diverse backgrounds and experiences to the classroom. They’ll share the knowledge and tools needed to succeed in the industry, including their own research that covers areas such as mental health, trauma, health, disabilities, sexual trauma, domestic violence, military veterans and families, virtual reality, addictions, infant mental health, child welfare, foster care, community work, among others.
The UCF MSW Online program is a CSWE accredited program with two tracks:

Advanced Standing Track
The advanced standing track is designed for students who have earned a BSW from a CSWE-accredited program within the last six years with a GPA of 3.3 in their last 60 credit hours. The track admits only one time a year in the fall semester. This track completes 32-credit hours over four semesters in a cohort model.
