Online MSW Programs in Idaho (ID)

Boise State University currently has the only school of social work with a campus in Idaho and a fully online MSW program. BSU’s program relies primarily on asynchronous instruction, which allows students to access course material at their convenience, although some courses are conducted in real time with instructors and peers via Blackboard Learn. Students in BSU’s online MSW program complete coursework in identifying mental, emotional and social challenges; understanding and engaging in policy practice; advocating for human rights and socio-cultural, economic and environmental justice; developing and implementing interventions; and understanding and engaging with diversity and difference.

Please note: All online MSW programs require students to complete field education at a local health services agency.

In addition to BSU, students residing in Idaho also have several out-of-state options. There are 25 out-of-state universities offering online MSW programs that accept students from Idaho. The majority of these schools offer fully online programs that do not require students to visit campus while earning their degrees, but five schools do require a limited number of campus visits. For students who want the flexibility of an online program but would still like to meet their professors and classmates in person, these programs may be a good option.

Additionally, several out-of-state institutions have the same tuition rate for in-state and out-of-state students, so aspiring social workers should research as many programs as possible while narrowing their list of MSW programs.
