Tulane University’s School of Social Work (TSSW) today announced the launch of a new online Master of Social Work (MSW). Tulane plans to, pending Council of Social Work Education approval, debut its inaugural MSW online program in January 2018.
Tulane University has a long, proud history of social work education, offering the first training program for social workers in the Deep South and today is a leading source of highly trained, compassionate practitioners. The School of Social Work has maintained full accreditation status since 1927, and is a charter member of the Council on Social Work Education. Now, 90 years later, Tulane opens the door to current and future social workers to obtain a high-quality graduate degree via tech-enabled online delivery.
“One of my primary objectives as the dean is bringing our outstanding pedagogy and faculty expertise to new audiences; the online MSW is an exciting first step in this direction,” noted Patrick Bordnick, Dean of TSSW. “We look forward to attracting students to our program who share our passion for empowering individuals and communities. TSSW faculty are committed to imparting the core values of service, social justice, and applied experiences to prepare our students to serve as agents of change from local to global contexts. Working with Noodle Partners we intend to build the top tier online Master of Social Work degree program in the country.”
Priced identically to the existing ground version, Tulane’s online MSW will also offer strong value compared to some online competitors. Tuition is approximately $1,000/credit hour, making the 60-credit program $20,000-$40,000 more affordable than peer programs. Additionally, Tulane will offer a tech-driven placement service to ensure that practicum hours efficiently complement students’ interests.
