Social Work

Greetings from the Director

Welcome to University of New England School of Social Work. We offer you the chance to experience a challenging, interactive and life-changing Master of Social Work program. Beginning at orientation, you critically examine contemporary issues, forge new understandings and collaborate with clients and communities to improve the health and well-being of all people. Social justice is a guiding value of our school whether you choose to work directly with individuals and families, build community resources, or lead policy-change initiatives. We are excited to have you learn with and from our accomplished faculty, community partners, and the other students and faculty who make up the interprofessional Westbrook College of Health Professions.

Our School of Social Work offers multiple learning options that make the UNE M.S.W. accessible and obtainable. We do our very best to be responsive to your individual circumstances while providing excellence in social work education. Below are M.S.W. options, time lines and formats:
