- UNE SSW Vision Statement 


Welcome to the University of New England School Social Work.

We have one of the most exciting Master of Social Work programs in the nation. With our students we critically examine some of the most difficult problems facing society and forge new understandings and solutions.

We offer three learning options:

  • A traditional face-to-face campus experience
  • A hybrid/flipped course option that blends classroom and online learning to allow for maximum flexibility while still retaining classroom relationships
  • A completely online program that can be matriculated from anywhere in the world

We offer Two Concentrations 

We are  accredited by the Council on Social Work Education to offer the Master of Social Work degree and is the only graduate program in the state of Maine that offers two concentrations:

  • Clinical Practice: The Individual, Families, and Groups (IFG) concentration is designed for students interested in advanced skills in health and mental health, substance abuse, trauma and other relevant clinical and case management arenas.
  • Community Practice: The Organizational and Community Practice (OCP) concentration is designed for students who want to develop advanced skills in program management, policy analysis, advocacy, community development, and related areas. 

Through our program you will meet excellent educators, each one dedicated to helping you become a leader in the profession. You will also meet classmates who will become lifelong colleagues and friends.

Explore what students and alumni have to say about their experiences in the program, come to campus for a visit, or contact us directly to learn more about the exciting opportunities available at UNE.
