MSW | Blended Online Program

The Blended Online Program offers students the flexibility and convenience of online learning combined with a traditional “in person” classroom setting for advanced coursework.

Students in this program complete their MSW in three years. In the first two years, classes are offered solely online in an asynchronous format, which means they are not typically held during a fixed meeting time. However, students have regularly scheduled assignments and due dates. In the third year, students take a combination of “on the ground” advanced courses and online classes in other curriculum areas.

Students can apply for their “on the ground” classes to be taken on our New Brunswick, Newark or Camden campuses. Field Placement begins in the second year and continues in the third year and students can choose to concentrate in either Clinical Social Work or Non-Profit and Public Management in their third year. The 3-year program structure provides students with significant flexibility and an extended timeframe to complete their MSW, while still offering the benefits of a live classroom to acquire advanced practice skills and competencies.

For 2014-2015 tuition and fees for the blended MSW program, see New Brunswick Campus Graduate Students at http://studentabc.rutgers.edu/tuition-and-fees.

Please note all Blended MSW students are considered New Brunswick Campus Graduate Students in terms of tuition and fees.
