Master of Social Work (MSW)

Take on challenging social work roles and deepen your level of practice with individuals and communities.

Deepen your ability to assist vulnerable populations and prepare to take on advanced practice roles in social work with the CSWE-accredited online program option of the Master of Social Work (MSW) at Sacred Heart University.

Qualify to sit for the Licensed Master of Social Work exam in Connecticut* immediately after graduation and earn hours toward state licensure for clinical social work (LCSW).

This online MSW program option provides you with a choice of a Direct Clinical Practice or a Direct Community Practice specialization, while including knowledge from each in both specializations to integrate micro- and macro-practice to better prepare you for licensure, practice and leadership. You can also finish your degree in as little as 20 months with the Advanced Standing option. To be eligible for Advanced Standing, students should have a bachelor’s degree in social work with a 3.0 GPA from the past six years.


You'll be well prepared to step into advanced practice roles and effect change at multiple levels of practice.
