The online Master of Social Work at UCF is a convenient solution for those looking to earn their degrees through distance education. We offer 7-week terms in which students focus on only one asynchronous course at a time. Field placements are available across the United States within a 45-mile radius of your location.
There are two available options for enrolling in the Online MSW:
Online MSW Part-Time Track
- Created for students who do not have a BSW degree or who earned their BSW more than six years prior to initial enrollment.
- 62-credit hours completed in a 3-year cohort model for stronger peer support
Online MSW Part-Time Advanced Standing Track
- Designed for students who have earned a BSW from a CSWE-accredited program within the last six years with a GPA of 3.3 in their last 60 credit hours.
- Admits only one time a year in the fall semester
- 32-credit hours completed over four semesters in a cohort model
Students are not permitted to switch between the online MSW tracks and the on-campus, face-to-face tracks due to the strict cohort model the Online MSW follows.
Educational Eligibility for LCSW
At this time our program meets the educational eligibility criteria for licensure as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the State of Florida.
We are unable to confirm the licensure and certification requirements of other states not listed above. If you intend to pursue such credentialing in your state or elsewhere, we advise you to contact the applicable state credentialing authority to familiarize yourself with its specific requirements and determine if our program meets its eligibility criteria. You may review state requirements through the Association of Social Work Boards.
You are welcome to contact Shawn Lawrence, Ph.D., MSW program director, with questions in this regard and we will do our best to assist you in your career planning.
