MSSW Online Program

Program Overview

The MSSW Online Program at University of Texas-Arlington will now be offering a web-based instruction by prominent national and international scholars. We have been offering our face-to-face students online education for a number of years. However, we are now ready to launch a full graduate degree program online! The new MSSW online program will operate on a part-time basis with a focus on Direct Practice with Children and Families. The focus of the MSSW online program is consistent with the expected social work job growth in the next couple of years. The Department of Labor (pdf) anticipates that social work jobs with children and families are likely to increase by 12% between 2008 and 2018. Click on the curriculum plan below to see how manageable earning a graduate social work degree from a reputable University and School can be. Our program will be taught by nationally and internally renowned faculty. We invite you to be part of the Maverick social work family!
