Social Work Courses

Offered by the School of Social Work at the University of New England, the Master of Social Work online option is open to students from a variety of educational backgrounds. The program embraces a vision of creating sustainable, equitable, and diverse communities committed to universal human rights, and social and economic justice.

Traditional Track courses establish a foundation for the master’s degree in social work by focusing on the history and principles of social work before progressing into the more advanced topics that are presented in the Advanced Standing Track. Candidates that qualify to enroll directly in the Advanced Standing Track, will begin building on the basic social work curriculum by focusing on advanced social work topics, theory, and skills they’ll need to become a successful social worker.
