Do you have a passion for helping others? Do you want to make a difference in your community? Do you want to make a difference in your career? Clinical social workers enhance and maintain the physical, psychological and spiritual well-being of individuals, families, and groups within their communities.  The Social Work (online) program is offered at Catholic University of America.


Licensed Clinical Social Workers (LCSWs) also provide much-needed mental health care services aimed at preventing and treating a wide range of mental and behavioral disorders in people from all social, financial, and ethnic classes. In short, the goal of clinical social work is to improve the quality of life of those in need.

Earn the advanced credentials required to practice clinical social work and be a force for good in your community. The Social Work (online) from The Catholic University of America's National Catholic School of Social Service (NCSSS) prepares you to obtain your license in clinical social work practice. The social work sector is expected to grow by 19 percent through 2022, with a major emphasis being placed on hiring LCSWs. Catholic University's online learning format allows you to prepare for the clinical social work licensing exam whenever and wherever it is most convenient for you.

Building on its strength as the leading clinical social work program in the Nation's Capital and one of the top ranked social work programs in the country, the online MSW degree exposes students to a demanding curriculum that puts theory into action. Catholic University's online MSW program is also accredited by the Council on Social Work Education, the sole accrediting agency for social work education in America.
