University of Central Florida Online MSW Program

The University of Central Florida’s School of Social Work offers a part-time, traditional and advanced standing online MSW program with concentrations in Behavioral Health and Child Welfare Services. The traditional program is comprised of a 3 year, 62 course credits curriculum for the traditional track and a 32 credit, 4 semester advanced standing track.

Field practicum hours are divided into two separate internships, which students complete during their second and third years in the program. The first field placement is a 400-hour generalist placement, while the second advanced clinical placement involves about 13 hours of work per week, totaling 600 hours for the year. Advanced standing students are only required to complete the 600 hour placement. For both placements, the UCF School of Social Work manages the placement of students in agencies within their area. Throughout the completion of their field practicums, students receive guidance from their field instructor, and also attend an online integrative seminar during which they discuss, evaluate, and analyze their experiences in the field.
