Earn a Clinically Focused MSW Online From Simmons College
The Nation's First School of Social Work
Five Curricular Pathways
Our clinically focused online Master of Social Work (MSW) program puts you face to face with a supportive group of peers and faculty dedicated to advocating for social justice and exploring multicultural perspectives. As a student, you will choose one of four clinical specializations or an Individualized Course of Study. Each curricular pathway prepares you to work directly with diverse individuals, families, groups, and communities.
The online program offers full-time, part-time, and accelerated tracks so you can earn your degree at the pace that best fits your lifestyle. We use a cohort model that enables you to connect with your classmates and professors and build relationships that continue after graduation. There are five cohort start dates per year, and applications are reviewed on a rolling basis. Learn how to apply for our next cohort, which starts classes in January.
“When I started the program, I was concerned that I would feel isolated and not forge friendships with my peers. I was pleasantly surprised that on a virtual platform I was not only able to get to know my classmates but also make a handful of close friends that have become an important part of my life.”
— Nichole Leary, ’17
