Since 1965, The University of Alabama School of Social Work has been preparing MSW students 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.

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

UA offers two options for earning your MSW: the advanced-standing program and the 60-credit-hour program. Both options offer two concentrations: Children, Adolescents and their Families or Adults and their Families. 

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.
