UNE Master of Social Work

Two Program Options

  • On Campus: A traditional face-to-face campus experience
    • The campus-based program provides a hybrid course option that blends classroom and online learning to allow for flexibility while still providing classroom relationships. 
  • Online: A completely online program that can be completed from anywhere in the world. 


All three of our Master of Social Work specializations prepare graduates for professional social work leadership positions within their communities.

Structures for Program Progression 

You can complete our program in as little as one year on an accelerated track, two years as a traditional full-time student, or at your own pace as a part-time student:

  • One-year Advanced Standing track (B.S.W. required)
  • Two-year traditional full-time track
  • Three- or four-year part-time track

Certificate Options

We offer three certificates you can achieve as part of obtaining your MSW and look forward to offering additional certificate programs, to be announced later in 2018.

Hybrid Course Options

Our M.S.W. program is campus-based, but offers some hybrid course options for those who desire greater flexibility:

  • Campus-based, meeting face-to-face in classrooms and in the field
  • Our campus-based program offers hybrid course options that blend face-to-face and online learning.
