George Mason University will now offer an online Master of Social Work (MSW) program, with classes starting in May 2019. The new online program is designed for students with a passion for serving the underserved and offers a curriculum built on a foundation of social justice, community connections, and systems thinking.

In just three years, students will graduate with an understanding of working with individuals, communities, and social service organizations to improve the lives of their clients. The 60-credit-hour curriculum explores topics such as:

Human Behavior and Social Systems

Influencing Social Policy

Research Methods for Social Workers

Advanced Clinical Practice

The online format provides flexibility and accessibility for working professionals anywhere to take the next step in their social work career. The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that demand for social workers will grow 16 percent through 2026, adding more than 100,000 jobs—a rate much faster than the national average.

Established faculty with active research interests and years of experience guide students through the curriculum and supervise their work during two required fieldwork practicums at real-world social service organizations.

George Mason University is now accepting applications to the program.
