MSW Blended Online Program

The most affordable online option for New Jersey residents, the MSW blended online program offers significant flexibility, as well as the benefits of a live classroom experience to acquire advanced practice skills and competencies.

The blended online program is completed in three years. In the first two years, classes are offered solely online in an asynchronous format and include regularly scheduled assignments and due dates. In the third year, there is a combination of in-person and online classes.  For in-person courses, students can choose from a flexible schedule of daytime and evening classes at any of our three campuses in New Brunswick, Camden, or Newark. 

Field Education

Field placement begins in the third semester of the program and continues through your final year. You can choose to specialize in either Clinical Social Work or Management and Policy in the third year. Field education is an essential pedagogical component of your MSW education. As you plan your course of study, explore the many field education options available to you.

The area of emphasis is a student-identified and student-driven topic, population, or specialization and involves three relevant courses and a field placement. The courses may include a combination of electives, advanced distribution requirements, and an advanced social policy course. These courses also count toward general academic requirements.
