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

Key Features

The primarily online Master of Social Work program is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education.

Student insurance

Make sure to cover your health, travel, and stay while studying abroad. Even global coverages can miss important items, so make sure your student insurance ticks all the following:

  • Additional medical costs (i.e. dental)
  • Repatriation, if something happens to you or your family
  • Liability
  • Home contents and baggage
  • Accidents
  • Legal aid

We partnered with Aon to provide you with the best affordable student insurance, for a carefree experience away from home.
