MSW Cohort Programs



Program Overview

The top-ranked fully Online MSW Cohort Program at The University of Texas at Arlington offers a web-based instruction by prominent national and international scholars. We offer full-time and part-time online MSW degree plans that range from 1-3 years in duration.

We offer an accelerated full-time online for Advanced Standing students that can be completed in 12 months. The accelerated online program offers 8-week classes and is designed to meet the needs of highly motivated students. The accelerated online cohort program begins every fall semester. Slots are limited and competitive for the accelerated online program.

We offer a regular online full-time cohort program for Advanced Standing and Traditional students that can be completed in 16 months and 26 months respectively.  Classes in the regular online program are 16 weeks long and are designed for students who want to finish fast, but prefer 16-weeks model classes and a slightly smaller course load. The regular online cohort programs begin in the fall and spring semesters.  In addition, we offer an online part-time cohort program.

We’ve expanded our online offerings to include three specialty areas: Direct Practice with Children and Families, Direct Practice in Mental Health and Substance Abuse, and Direct Practice in Aging. Click on the curriculum plan below or got to the MSW Program Options page to see how manageable earning a graduate social work degree online from a reputable University and School can be.

If you prefer a mix of face-to-face and online classes, our hybrid cohort programs may be just right for you. We invite you to be part of the Maverick Social Work Family in whatever best meets your needs!.

At this time, you must be a Texas resident currently living in Texas to apply to the Online MSW program. However, contact our School of Social Work Admissions Office for questions and additional information.  Texas residents who are military Veterans, Active Duty, Reserves, National Guard and their spouses are eligible to apply for the online program regardless of current living location (we would need to work closely with you for field internship placements).

Note: MSW students not in a cohort and taking classes face-to-face may be able to take some online classes when available, but fully online cohort students have priority.
