Nationally ranked by U.S. News and World Report, we are uniquely suited to deliver a quality academic program. Faculty based in our campus program will be collaboratively developing and delivering the curriculum with an advanced focus on Practice and Leadership with Communities and Organizations.
The Social Work program at Portland State University is uniquely designed for those who have traditionally lacked access to the MSW degree. We will offer a dynamic learning opportunity, using online curriculum, innovative teaching techniques and student directed learning in a structure that supports a family, work, school life balance.
How does the MSW Online Option work?
Students complete the 78 credit MSW degree over the course of 3 years, taking 6-9 credits per term (fall, winter, spring, summer). During years 2 and 3, students complete a 16 hour/week field placement. The MSW Online Option has two advanced concentrations to choose from, Health Across the Lifespan or Practice and Leadership with Communities and Organizations.
