With over 100 years of experience in offering a campus-based, internationally recognized MSW program focused on Social Work Practice in Chicago, we are proud to announce the launch of the Online Program Option to ensure students have access to a rigorous and quality-enriched program to meet the needs of the workforce of tomorrow!

How are we different from the other Online MSW programs?

- A re-envisioned curriculum that took two years to develop by faculty & staff brings you to a rigorous MSW program that has the lowest credit hour (from 60 to 49) requirement in the country.

- We achieved this by carefully integrating competencies throughout various courses, using cutting-edge instructional innovations, and augmenting simulation practice in the classroom.

- We focus on the current & future workforce needs

  • Across the nation
    • Advanced Micro Specialization – Migration Track
    • Advanced Leadership and Mezzo/Macro Specialization – Leadership Track
  • Only in Illinois
    • Advanced Micro Specialization – School Social Work Track

- Online “Only” is not something everybody wants in Social Work Education

  • Our courses are flexible enough that synchronous “face-to-face” discussions are incorporated into didactic content to give students opportunities to have professional mentorships, networks, and friendships built for a lifetime

- We use the latest in Engagement Platforms for Field Internship Placements & Alumni-Student Mentorships

- Field Internships will be close to your neighborhood to enable you to be a home-grown “Leader”!

- We offer all of our academic and administrative services in-house by exceptional faculty and staff

  • Over 98% of faculty have a terminal degree in Social Work and more than 5 years of practice experience
  • 51% of full-time faculty are underrepresented racial or ethnic minorities
