Welcome to the Wurzweiler Online Student Experience

For students of the online Master of Social Work (MSW) program at the Wurzweiler School of Social Work, your experience is guided as closely and attentively as that of our on-ground students. The same faculty are equally committed to your success and to providing an enriching learning experience rooted in cultural tradition, a contemporary curriculum and practical fieldwork engagements.

Working Together to Serve a Greater Good

It is our shared mission to serve people in need and contribute what we are able to vulnerable communities around the world. By investing in each of our students and sharing what we know of advocacy, community leadership and clinical practice, we can help equip you to become the means by which we serve. For students like you, the online experience is a considerable aspect of our ability to support your efforts and help facilitate your success.

Take a moment to explore the resources made available exclusively to our online students, including specific support for your online learning environment, and discover how the online MSW program at Wurzweiler can assist you in turning your passion into your career.


Speaker 1: At Wurzweiler School of Social Work, we are under the umbrella of Yeshiva University, which is a larger university with many components underneath. Adding this online component has opened up a world to us, literally and figuratively. So, there are people down the block that cannot come to classes during the times that we offer them. There are people across the world who can't put their life on hold and come here for the summer for our summer program.

Speaker 2: There is nothing magical necessarily about coming to campus and sitting in one of our chairs, but there is something magical about the way that we will teach people social work. We want our education to accompany a student into the field, wherever they are, and not feel that a student has to take themselves out of their home community and take their experience, their expertise, and their knowledge away from a community that may very well need their help.

Speaker 1: That's what makes this program more unique than other online MSW programs, is that you are taking the quality of our face to face program and being able to take it online.

Speaker 2: I actually never want a faculty member or a student to talk about taking an online class. What I want them to talk about is having an online experience, where they can really use all of their senses, all of their faculties, and all of their ways of learning to acquire knowledge in social work practice. I think our program is special because we do not deliver online classes. We deliver really high quality online learning experiences and through online learning communities.

Speaker 1: We keep our classes small. We increase our faculty rather than increase our class size. The reason being, it's an interactive education. You are not sitting back and learning, you are an integral part of your education.

Speaker 2: Learning how to be a social worker isn't about sitting in a classroom and just taking notes. It's really about the relationships that you're able to form with your faculty, with your colleagues, and peers, and with people in the field who are actual social workers. Those are people and relationships that you will have that will follow you into the workforce and will really form the basis of your professional community. So, I think our program is extremely special in that way.
