Message from the Dean's Office:
I am writing to let you know that the School of Social Work will be offering all social work courses online for the fall 2020 semester. This includes all social work classes in the BSW, MSW, and PhD programs. Please note that this decision does not reflect what other Loyola University Chicago schools and departments may be planning for the fall. If your plan of study involves courses outside of the School of Social Work, you will need to wait to hear what that specific school or department has planned. If you are a BSW student, there may be the opportunity to take some non-social work courses on campus in the fall. READ MORE
