Shape Your Passion into Purpose with the Wurzweiler School of Social Work's Online MSW

We believe that students of social work are driven by an innate calling and personal conviction to serve others. But before they are able to act on their conviction and fully realize their potential impact, these students must define their professional goals and align their passion to a specific purpose. Because it is here at this intersection of passion and purpose that your future impact begins to take shape and find direction.

Entering the online Master of Social Work (MSW) program at Wurzweiler, your opportunities for impact are refined by an engaging curriculum that explores cultural diversity, research methods, intervention and advocacy, professional ethics and more. Throughout the program, you will learn how to support clients on all functional levels by practicing tolerance and an empathetic approach to social and demographic factors that may include poverty, violence, illness and immigration.

Along the way, you will begin to define your professional goals and chart a new course toward your calling.
