About

Since 1965 The University of Alabama School of Social Work has been preparing MSW's to make a difference in the lives of others. Regardless of your work schedule, you can earn your MSW through distance learning and join our community of alumni who are serving clients in Alabama, across the U.S. and across the world.

Overview

As a student in the MSW program, you can:

  • Increase your knowledge of social problems and their solutions.
  • Learn to improve social conditions for those in Alabama and throughout the U.S.
  • Develop the skills to promote social justice and human dignity for all people.

UA offers two options for earning your MSW: the Advanced-Standing Program and the 60-credit-hour program.

The Advanced-Standing Program is a 42-credit-hour program for only those who hold a CSWE-accredited BSW. It can be completed in three semesters when pursued full-time. Coursework is offered primarily online with face-to-face skills labs held on selected Saturdays at regionally convenient locations across Alabama.

The 60-credit-hour program is for those who do not currently hold a CSWE-accredited BSW. It is also available primarily online with face-to-face skills labs held at regionally convenient locations on selected Saturdays across the state of Alabama.
