Online MSW Programs in Texas (TX)

Students and professionals in Texas interested in earning a Master of Social Work (MSW) online have several options in terms of both in-state and out-of-state universities. There are four schools in Texas that offer online MSW programs: Our Lady of the Lake University (OLLU), Texas State University – San Marcos, University of Houston, and the University of Texas at Arlington. All four graduate schools offer fully online MSW programs that do not require students to visit the campus. For Texas State University – San Marcos, there is a research forum where local students can attend in person; otherwise, students are required to attend via a web camera.

For students who have already earned a Bachelor of Social Work from a CSWE accredited undergraduate program, all four schools offer online advanced standing MSW programs as well. At this time, OLLU, Texas State, University of Houston, and UT Arlington only offer these programs in a part-time format that can typically be completed in two to two and a half years.

In addition to the four schools with physical campuses in Texas, there are 24 schools with online MSW programs that accept students from Texas. (On OnlineMSWPrograms.com, we classify any MSW program that requires two or fewer visits to the campus per year as an online program.) Of the 24 graduate schools with online MSW programs, 18 are fully online and do not require students to visit the campus. The other six: California State University, San Bernardino (three visits required), Columbia University (two visits), Humboldt State University in California (one to two visits per year), Portland State University in Oregon (one visit per year), the University of Indiana (one visit required), and the University of North Dakota (two visits for traditional students, one visit for advance standing students) require a limited number of campus visits.

Many graduate schools have a set tuition rate for their online MSW programs that is the same for in-state and out-of-state students. To learn more about the programs offered at each school, click on the school name in the tables below.
