Online M.S.W. Program

Benefit from in-person instruction and the freedom to complete coursework online.

Adelphi’s School of Social Work has long been on the forefront of making education accessible to students with work and family responsibilities. Our online M.S.W. program is a low-residency, innovative and user-friendly alternative to distance-learning degree programs and traditional on-campus classes, and even blended programs that combine the two.

You’ll have the convenience of completing your coursework online, on your own time, while balancing work and family responsibilities. And you’ll benefit from receiving individualized, in-person instruction from our dedicated faculty while connecting with your fellow students.

Rather than attending classes on a weekly or even monthly basis, you and your cohort will participate in 2-6 days of intensive course instruction twice per year on campus (in January and August). You will also develop your practice skills through employment-based field placement, or we’ll work with you to find a fieldwork position through our network of partnering facilities. We have community partners throughout the New York metropolitan region that will provide you with an enriching professional experience in the field of your choice at a convenient location.

You’ll graduate ready to advance in your field and enhance your professional practice.
