Asbury University Online MSW Program

Asbury University’s School of Graduate and Professional Studies offers a traditional online Master of Social Work degree for students with a bachelor’s degree in any field other than social work. This program offers a Child and Family services concentration for students, both traditional-standing and advanced-standing. The traditional program takes approximately four years to complete (60 semester hours) while the advanced program takes approximately two years to complete (39 semester hours).

Asbury University offers both a part-time traditional program and a part-time advanced standing program. The university does not offer full-time programs for either standing. To meet requirements, students will spend two days per week on campus and spend the rest of the week, usually 18-20 hours, on field education. Additionally, students are required to participate in a one-week residency per year.

Asbury University’s School of Graduate and Professional Studies is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) and the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE).
